I love black rhythms, and only one month after the great fun at Notting Hill Carnival, I once again found myself boogieing in London to some great musicians and irresistible beats. This time it was only slightly more civilized, as the venue were not the streets of West London, but the Afroreggae show in an auditorium at the Barbican. The music programme at Barbican always offers great quality and diversity, and they have been hosting the wonderful and colorful Brazilian Afroreggae crew for a number of years already.

I have an exciting spring ahead of me, especially when it comes to music. I’ve already put a few dates in my diary, namely The Silver Mount Zion Orchestra at Scala, Low at the Union Chapel and (hopefully) Portishead in April, the ATP Festival curated by Explosions In The Sky in May, and Radiohead at Malahide Castle (Dublin) in June.
I was really excited when I read they had been appointed, even though no more news have ben released since, regarding the line-up for their version of the week-long festival. The one thing that appears certain is that M.A. will be on stage at some point, and that is the one date I want to add to my list. While curiosity rises as to who they will be inviting to perform. Hopefully some details will be released soon – will post as soon as I have some updates.

My innate love for drums was largely fulfilled yesterday night, when I found myself at London Astoria standing right before the stage, and witnessing the wonders this guy can do with the instrument.
The guy is Chris Hrasky, drummer of American instrumental post-rock band Explosions In The Sky.
