Worldwide Premiere // Family Atlantica – Enjera
March 10, 2016
Psychedelic highlife, steel-pan Ethio-funk, calypso, baio, equatorial jazz and deep afro-Atlantic dance rhythms – London seven piece Family Atlantica aren’t too light on the global influences! Following their eponymous debut for Soundway in 2013, they return with Cosmic Unity, another intercontinental affair. Produced by Jack Yglesias of the Heliocentrics, the album also comes with some high profile collaborations from afrobeat colossus Orlando Julius and Sun Ra Arkestra’s bandleader Marshall Allen. The album won’t be out til May, but here’s a first listen to the album’s lead track ‘Enjera’
Cosmic Unity LP is released 13th May – pre-order from the Soundway website. Catch the band on tour this summer.
