Lineup and Details for African Head Charge
African Head Charge
with support from Culture Dub Orchestra & DJ Jonnie Greaves (Ruffer N Tuffer)
Co-founded by the legendary underground producer Adrian Sherwood, African Head Charge is a globally-acclaimed, pioneering dub-reggae ensemble led by original co-founder, master percussionist and royal rastaman, Bonjo Iyabhinghi Noah.
Pulsating with tribal drum beats and chanting from the soul of Africa, African Head Charge fuse together primal rhythms with heavy psychedelic dub, roots reggae and 21st century electronica. Formed originally as a studio project in 1981, the London-based collective has gone on to achieve semi-legendary cult status, creating 13 albums and gracing stages across the world, from Australia and New Zealand to Glastonbury music festival.
Their epic live show features a line-up of 6-8 world-star performers, fusing together djembes, guitars, drums, keys and vocals with heavy electronic sampling. The collective use this blend of live and electronica to generate an intoxicating soundscape of reggae-inflected drumming, visceral vocals and bottomless, thrumming bass-lines that truly reach to the heart of your being.
With a deeper, darker and heavier live sound than ever before, the collective are once again ready to enrapture their global fan-base, as well as reach out to a new generation of fans around the world. From roots right through to rave.
