Following this spring’s sold out shows at BAM and the Barbican Center in London (to raving reviews!), and after playing festivals all around Europe this summer (too even more raving reviews!) and a fantastic show in Central Park, New York City, at The Modern Sky Festival, the “Atomic Bomb! The music of William Onyeabor” is going to the festival Tropico in Acapulco! Playing alongside Pachanga Boys, WhoMadeWho, Dj Harvey and many others, the show will be part of our worldwide Luaka Bop birthday party (we’re celebrating 25 years in NYC and the world!!) – expect the best plate spinners and dog show you’ve ever seen – and a fantastic lineup of artists and special guests performing the futuristic Afro-Funk of William Onyeabor:
Then the show will continue in Australia in the new year to be part of the wonderful Sydney Festival, featuring Gotye, Sinkane, Money Mark, Pat Mahoney (LCD Soundsystem/Museum of Love), Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip), Luke Jenner (The Rapture) and the lovely Mahotella Queens from South Africa!
