Preview: Soothsayers + Childhood + Wu-Lu @ The Jazz Café (London; Friday 9th February 2018)  


Rumor has it that in June 2018 we will see and listen to a new Soothsayers album. So, if we were you, we wouldn’t miss the upcoming show of the London-based sextet at Camden’s Jazz Café.

On the 9th of February, the band will introduce its fans to Dis & Dat, the first single taken from Tradition, their sixth release. They will retrace their upbeat career, which has reached its twentieth year and will possibly throw some hints at their new work, while still holding fast to their Afrobeat, dub and jazzy credo.

However, the event, more than a Soothsayers celebration, will assume the character of a “family business”: a Romans-Hopcraft musical get-together, to be more precise.

Next to Robin (Soothsayers’ founder and saxophonist) the Jazz Café stage will host his two sons: Ben (with his indie-pop and rock band Childhood) and Miles (better known as Wu-Lu, with his eclectic and alternative selections and productions) for a well-tuned generational music “clash”.

Preview: K.O.G. & the Zongo Brigade + Wu-Lu & DJ Gilla @ Jazz Café (London, 17th March 2017)

You might think a 9-piece band is overwhelming by definition.
