When scouring the world for new bands, we couldn’t possibly forget about the needs of our world music fans.
Abavuki – South African explosion of wooden marimbas, drums and wind instruments

Abavuki is a band comprising eight guys from Cape Town in South Africa. The name given to the group roughly translates as “Wake up early birds” which for us conjures up something rather delicate to gently lift you from sweet slumber… but this is a far cry from the incredible rhythmic sound storm they actually produce.

In among the hardcore drumming dance frenzy combining African and Cuban rhythms Afrobeat, soul and jazz, prepare yourselves for some fantastic singing by all band members , some occasionally breaking into opera-esque vocals.  Simply great.




The exact line-up for Colours of Ostrava 2013, including the day–to-day schedule and a breakdown of specific times, will be published during the course of June 2013.

For now you can take a look at the list of confirmed bands here.
