Robert Plant’s new band Sensational Space Shifters are heading to UK for the latest tour leg. The combo of players is bound to be a big sensation in the UK.
On Juju’s latest release, In Trance, they don’t just dissolve the fragile boundaries between African tradition and rock – they demolish them with relish, they turn the walls upside down, they crash the gates open and set the inmates free. And the freedom is exhilarating!
After a five year absence, British artists are returning to the Womex world music convention this year: Juju, a collaboration between guitarist Justin Adams and Gambian griot Juldeh Camara; a figurehead of English folk music, Eliza Carthy performing with her new band; and Krar Collective.
