Thristian bPm Presents…Global Roots with Owiny Sigoma Band // Village Underground
May 20, 2013
Thristian bPm (Boiler Room, NTS) begins his series of Global Roots nights at Village Underground by inviting Brownswood Recordings’ Owiny Sigoma Band to perform their live show, following their Europe-wide tour supporting Thom Yorke’s ‘Atoms For Peace’. Thristian will be manning the decks before and after Owiny Sigoma Band’s show.
One of the original architects of the Boiler Room, Thristian bPm has built a reputation as an instinctive and eclectic DJ, and as the Head of Music for Boiler Room, he’s responsible for the dynamic and eclectic line-ups that have become synonymous with Boiler Room sessions from around the world – from London to Los Angeles, and Berlin to Cape Town.
Owiny Sigoma Band, whose second album ‘Power Punch’ was released in March this year, align perfectly with Global Roots: two Kenyan musicians playing traditional West African instruments alongside four London based producers, twisting the African elements and adding contemporary electronic styles. ‘Power Punch’ has received widespread acclaim, with the Observer calling the album ‘Ingenious’ and Q Magazine claims ‘cuts across genres with winning flair’.
