Dance Your Troubles Away (William Onyeabor Night)


William Onyeabor.jpg

BODY AND SOUL
When I play my kind of music
I’m playing for your body and soul
When I sing my kind of song
I’m singing for your body and soul
If you find yourself feeling happy
Better come and dance my music now
If you find yourselves in trouble
You better come and dance your troubles away
I say dance...

Anyone who came to the last one of these will be able to tell you it was quite an evening! We will, of course, be playing loads of the great mans back catalogue but also expect to hear from everything on Luaka Bop, a cacophony of Afrobeat and World Music acts, modern-day Oneyabor collaborators and a few additional legendary moth club floor fillers.
