We are teaming up with a group of West African musicians fronted by Edd Bateman to pay tribute to our favourite Talking Heads albums Remain in the Light and Speaking in Tongues.
Considering the afrobeat influences of these albums, we thought a massive collective of musicians from West Africa would offer a completely unique take on David Byrne’s timeless compositions.
British bass player Edd Bateman has been collaborating with west African musicians for the last 15 years and 2016 saw Edd Bateman’s West African Love Affair tour the world with musicians from Senegal, Guinea Conakry, Gambia, Cameroon, Congo, Cote D’Ivoire and Equatorial Guinea.
N.B. This is a tribute, Talking Heads will not be performing.
