London Astrobeat Orchestra

The London Astrobeat Orchestra have ignited a movement where cult western band repertoires are blended with African influences and have made quite an impact in doing so.

The band bring together the finest West African session musicians in the UK with legendary band leader & bassist Edd Bateman hosting rhythmic influences from Senegal, Guinea Conakry, Mali, Nigeria and Congo. Featuring JeannotBel on guitar, OluwatobilobaMcQuitty on drums, blues rock and astrophericsoundscaping guitarist and vocalist Julian Burdock, and renowned Guinean Master Griotkora player ‘MosiConde’.

Selling out their first 4 debut shows at The Jazz Café, London, the band were affectionately nicknamed the ‘African Talking Heads’. When you consider the Afrobeatvibes, that run through all the best Talking Heads albums, it’s both appropriate & correct that this collective of musicians, from West Africa, Europe & beyond should offer this completely unique take, of the finest of Mr David Byrne &Co’s timeless compositions and has received critical acclaim.
