As part of our partnership with Wah Wah 45s we are delighted to present the Soothsayers.
A “South London intuition” (ClashMusic), Soothsayers draw together the local raw materials of 24 carat dub, Afro-beat, and deep-funk with influences such as The Wailers, Fela Kuti, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Skatalites, The Specials, Hugh Masakela, Roots Manuva, Massive Attack, and King Tubby.
Part of the influential Wah Wah 45s roster, their releases include the EPs Speak To My Soul and Dis & Dat. New album, Tradition, is set for a summer release.
As a live experience, fiery, soulful vocal chants, conquering horns, fat, heavy grooves and a line-up of astonishingly talented musicians – including founders Robin Hopcraft (trumpet/vocals) and Idris Rahman (sax/vocals), and acclaimed jazz musician Julia Biel - produce a memorable, afro-inspired, dub-fuelled, dance-inducing experience.
