With blazing debut album ‘Katang’ out ON THE 3rd OF October on Bella Union records, Zun Zun Egui have just announced plans to bring their amped-up jamboree of 4th world song and joyous rocked-out sonics to the people for an extensive UK tour just after its release. The band’s groove-rooted riot has been brewed and refined onstage over the past two years, at international festivals big and small including Roskilde, SXSW and Incubate, at the concert halls of London in support of David Byrne and at their monthly Bristol club night ‘How Come…’

This is the chance to catch them in their full-blooded element: wild multi-lingual vocal incantations and splenetic, world-wise guitar licks mingle with zig-zag splashes of keyboard colour, while heavy, heavy bass and drums offer the crucial undertow that commits any foot with feeling to the dance.
