The Shaolin Afronauts – Quest Under Capricorn


2011′s debut album from The Shaolin Afronauts ‘Flight Of The Ancients’ was a critical and commercial success story, lauded as a truly original blend of the sounds of 1970′s West Africa, Ethiopia and the pioneering and progressive avant-garde jazz artists of the same period. Now in 2012, The Shaolin Afronauts continue their musical journey with the follow up album ‘Quest Under Capricorn’ and the groups musical progression is apparent from the outset. Quest Under Capricorn marks a development and progression of The Shaolin Afronauts sound, which evokes the spirit of the mighty Sun Ra, Mulatu Astatke, Fela Kuti, John Coltrane and a host of other free thinking musical pioneers and explorers… and sets the group well apart from the glut of less explorative and imaginative groups of a similar ilk. The Shaolin Afronauts return with a highly original sound made up of classic influences, but tailor made for the 21st century.
