African Head Charge at The Jazz Cafe in London

Event description

One of the most groundbreaking dub acts in history” – Bandcamp. Co-founded by the legendary underground producer Adrian Sherwood, African Head Charge is a globally-acclaimed, pioneering dub-reggae ensemble led by original co-founder, master percussionist and royal rastaman, Bonjo Iyabhinghi Noah.

Pulsating with tribal drum beats and chanting from the soul of Africa, African Head Charge fuse together primal rhythms with heavy psychedelic dub, roots reggae and 21st century electronica. Formed originally as a studio project in 1981, the London-based collective has gone on to achieve semi-legendary cult status, creating 13 albums and gracing stages across the world. Their epic live show features a line-up of eight world-star performers, fusing together djembes, guitars, drums, keys and vocals with heavy electronic sampling. The collective use this blend of live and electronica to generate an intoxicating soundscape of reggae-inflected drumming, visceral vocals and bottomless, thrumming bass-lines that truly reach to the heart of your being. With a huge reissue project on Warp and On-U Sound set for July, now is a better time than ever to celebrate the greatness that is African Head Charge.
