The African Soul Rebels 2009 tour is the most pan-African yet. Opening the show with an irresistible East African beat are Extra Golden, a band who offer a unique collision between Kenyan benga and Midwestern rock. Alongside members of his longstanding band Daande Lenol, Baaba Maal will be digging deep into the treasure trove of Senegalese music for a powerful acoustic set. Closing the show is Oliver Mtukudzi and his band, the Black Spirits, for many years the most challenging outfit in Zimbabwe and guaranteed to get any dance floor shaking.
