Wildbirds & Peacedrums have been invited to join the 'Congotronics vs Rockers' tour which travels across Europe and Japan from the end of June. The Swedish duo will be uniting with the members of Congolese bands Konono No. 1 and Kasai Allstars as well as Deerhoof, Juana Molina and Skeletons to form a collaborative ensemble, twenty musicians in total. Full story here.
The tour comes on the back of the brilliant compilation, Tradi-Mods vs Rockers: Alternative Takes on Congotronics, which was released at the tail-end of last year. The double album features 26 artists from rock and dance backgrounds paying tribute to the Congolese bands' music in the form of their own creative interpretations of their songs. Find out more about it here.
Meanwhile, Mariam and Andreas head down under soon for a tour of Australia followed by a set of dates in Europe. You can see all their shows on our live page.
