London Astrobeat Orchestra are touring their Talking Heads tribute show this summer, including a must-see Band on the Wall performance. Nicknamed the African Talking Heads, the ensemble combines transcontinental musicianship to evoke David Byrne’s worldly rhythms through guitars, drums, percussion, kora and bass. They promise tracks from the classic albums ‘Remain In The Light’ and ‘Speaking in Tongues’, exquisitely re-imagined for intimate climes.
