The Africa Express Tour hits the road in England this September. What is it? Good question.
As the website explains, the tour is “new artists, vocalists, DJs and producers from Africa and the West” putting on “unrehearsed and unapologetic” shows.
Sounds amazing. Wish they would come stateside.
The lineup for the September UK tour dates includes Damon Albarn, Amadou and Mariam, Charli XCX, Fatoumata Diawara, Noisettes, Rokia Traoré, Kano, Baloji, Jupiter and Okwess International and Jack Steadman of Bombay Bicycle Club.
