Shabaka and the Ancestors // Live dates in 2017
December 31, 2016
Following the release of Wisdom of Elders, the sprawling masterpiece crafted by Shabaka and the Ancestors, the band have announced they’ll be coming to New York in January, followed by Europe in March and April, for some rare live dates. Uniting together astral-gazing Sun Ra spiritualism with diaspora-wide traces of musical influence, the record rewarding endless listens.
Reuniting London-based bandleader Shabaka Hutchings with the South African musicians who played on the album, chances to see them playing together don’t come around often.
