Following on from the hugely successful Icons of Wu-Tang event in March, we present our next one-day festival, PALM WINE BEATS LIVE! An exploration into the genius of Africa and her diaspora. We'll also be previewing Lo-Fi Odysseys polyrhythmic saga, Palm Wine Beats Volume 3.
Last year, Lo-Fi produced the first two volumes of his five-part series Palm Wine Beats (PWB), supported by the likes of OkayAfrica, Sunday Service, Dynamic Africa and Jusi I Love. These beat-tapes were unique in their cinematic feel and historical depth, a way for him to “crate dig his heritage”. You could almost see them play out before your eyes. The next step was obvious: bring these tapes to life!
Join us at the Total Refreshment Centre, 20th of August for Palm Wine Beats Live! It’s going to be uplifting, educational and an inspiring day. Times are tough so we’ve packed in as much value as we can into this one. See you there!
Here’s what’s in store:
£10 [includes PWB VOL 1 cassette tape - allocated to first-come]
Donation entrance accepted
Kids aged 12 and under go free (when accompanied by a paying adult)
A portion of the profits will be donated to Music Fund, a humanitarian project that supports musicians and music schools in conflict areas and developing countries.
