A band from the US who are reportedly looking to dip their toe into the UK music scene, Afrosonics are huge eight piece collective who simply love to make music people can dance to. As you can see from the video above – a live performance of track ‘Che Che Kule’ with the studio recording dubbed over the top – it works.
Labelling themselves ‘Afro rock’, the band mix genres and cultures to create their unusual sound. It’s not quite indie or rock, not quite reggae or soul, it’s something in between. The key thing here is that it’s energetic and great fun, the kind of thing you can imagine killing it at a festival.
It’s in this environment – huge festivals in their local area – where Afrosonics are making their name in front of crowds of thousands. And if they can send that many people home happy, there’s no reason why they can’t do the same on these shores.
