On 16 July, the much anticipated second album from The Shaolin Afronauts will land via Freestyle Records; Quest Under Capricorn.
As a taster of things to come, Ross McHenry of The Shaolin Afronauts has put together this fantastic mix containing some tracks from the new album, as well as some of the band's favourite tracks and influences.
2011's debut album, Flight Of The Ancients, was a critical and commercial success story that went on to be nominated for several music awards, including the 25th Aria Fine Arts Awards in the world music category.
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. The Shaolin Afronauts return with a highly original sound made up of classic influences, but tailor made for the 21st century.
