Sunday, April 29, 2012 at 1:30pm until 5:00pm
The sound of West African funk medicine is administered directly to the soul by The Afrobiotics, your personal afro-beat doctors. Hypnotic basslines and undulating guitars lay the foundations for fiery horn lines and vocalist Lamine Sonko’s message of struggle, peace and sheer joy. Hailing from Senegal, Sonko AKA Mister Fantastic is a master of percussion and dance but he proves himself to be equally comfortable fronting this dynamic six piece.
The Afrobiotics are joined for this afternoon performance by Ghana’s Asanti Dance Theatre, a troop of dancers that combine traditional West African dance with contemporary moves, accompanied by powerful drummers. Opening the show will be a performance by Seydou Sow’s dance school, showcasing some up and coming talent.
This matinee show featuring live percussion, dance and great music is not to be missed!
Afrobiotics playing tonight at Bar Open 317 Brunswick st fitzroy.10.30pm start Free.Afro-Beat!
