Fantastic Man - Film Screening + Live Performance on Friday 18th January 2019
A rare public screening of Fantastic Man - a documentary about mythical Nigerian musician William Onyeabor. Featuring interviews with Damon Albarn, Femi Kuti, Martyn Ware and Caribou.
The Nigerian former record label owner and electro-funk musician lived a life shrouded in storybook-like mystery, with some of the only verified information about him traceable to the nine albums he self-released on his Wilfilms label between 1977 and 1985. Once you divert from the music that drew in fans from around the world beyond Onyeabor's hometown of Enugu, details start to fade.
Following the screening there will be a live performance from an African percussion and dance troop.
Special thanks to Director Jake Sumner and Alldayeveryday Productions for granting us permission to showcase their work.
Music Genres: African, Tribal House
