The London Astrobeat Orchestra pay tribute to their favourite Talking Heads albums with a three night run at the Jazz Cafe.

Having already sold out of two nights, a final third night has been added to the run, on 28th March.

The Jazz Cafe will team up with a group of West African musicians fronted by Edd Bateman to pay tribute to two of the best-loved 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.
