Atomic Bomb!: The Music of William Onyeabor- Live!

(scroll down for tickets & line-ups)

Dear friends, we are pleased to announce that our no-longer-top secret experiment with the Atomic Bomb! band has been super fun and successful (for once even The Brits and French agree!). Last week, Damon Albarn, Alexis Taylor from Hot Chip, Ghostpoet and Kele Okereke from Blocparty came out to what became the first ever live performance of Mr. William Onyeabor’s music at the Barbican Center in London and Colston Hall in Bristol. 

Led by our incredible music director Ahmed Gallab and his band Sinkane, other guests included Money Mark, Pat Mahoney from LCD Soundsytem, the lovely Lijadu Sisters (their first show in 30 years!), three fantastic horn players and two wonderful Yoruban drummers from Nigeria! The ensemble performed for the first time together, creating a performance of atomic bomb proportions. 

Fellow friends living in America can catch our next round of shows happening May 2 & 3 in New York at BAM, May 6 in San Francisco at The Warfield, and May 8 in Los Angeles at The Greek. Expect killer performance from David Byrne, Alexis Taylor, Pat Mahoney, Money Mark, Sinkane, The Lijadue Sisters, Joshua Redman, and a special New York appearance from Luke Jenner  and Devonté Hynes- as well as Kele Okereke in San Francisco and Los Angeles.
