LIVE AFRO LATIN GOODNESS TONIGHT | The Cactus Channel and The Liberators playing live at 505 (280 Cleveland St Surry Hills)
The Cactus Channel have been cooling down since releasing their second collection of instrumental fire starters, but as winter comes its time to rub some hands together and de mist the windscreen before heading back into the dankest shed in Melbourne to begin the writing of their next release. They are hitting up two of their favourite spots up North.
The Cactus Channel are consistently turning heads and shifting opinions about what it is to be an instrumental 10 piece band in the era of laptop producers and Kanye. No doubt they will continue to do so with their next release. Joined by afrobeat powerhouse The Liberators (SYD). It promises to be big (huge), don’t oversleep.
Inspired by Afrobeat and American funk, The Liberators are a rock solid outfit typifying the Nigerian Afrobeat sound of 70’s Africa. The Sydney Based 10 piece create a fierce array of super heavy grooves that ensure you are served with some sizzling treats. Continuing on from the success of their self titled debut album (2011), and follow up album ‘Power Struggle’ (2013), The Liberators dedication and commitment has resulted in a positive following within Australia and globally with worldwide radio play.
