Incredible afro force that flies in from Adelaide will land at The Laundry Bar this friday to launch their incredible debut LP “Flight Of The Ancients”. Do yourself a favour and be there for the fantastic night that will blow your mind! afrolp2

The mysterious afro-soul of The Shaolin Afronauts first echoed across the dance floors of Australia in late early 2008. Heavily inspired by the sounds of 1970’s West Africa, Ethiopia and the pioneering avant-garde jazz artists of the same period the Shaolin Afronauts draw on the this highly innovative and sometimes volatile era in music, using it as inspiration to create music with the same fire and intensity. Their spirited performances have fast gained a reputation as some of the most exciting live shows around. Though there is something refreshing and original about the Afronauts, their music could be described as somewhere in between the heavy Afrobeat of Fela Kuti and the Ethio-Jazz of Mulatu Astatke.

supports on the night come from me, KANO, Tom Noonan and Melbourne funk sensations SASKWATCH. Now last time Saskwatch played there were no red cardigans! Is there a funk revolution or is Liam doing the dry cleaning? Do not miss this gig as it will blow your mind, my mind and potentially get you some fresh moves for the Syl Johnson show the next night! and then the TRANSATLANTICS show at BAR OPEN…its free and SYL will finish at midnight, so hurry over to Fitzroy!!
