After 15 years of collaborating with African musicians throughout the world, British bass player Edd Bateman launches a campaign to promote his debut album.
“Edd Bateman’s in love – and he wants the whole world to know!” Scintillating kora and marimba combine with relentless soukous guitar and subtle Senegalese mbalax grooves over a captivating Cameroonian backbeat – and all underpinned by Edd’s pulsating basslines. If this doesn’t get you on your feet, bopping and swaying, after the first four bars, you’re obviously in need of an emergency groove transfusion…
