African Head Charge is a psychedelic dub ensemble active since 1981. The group was formed by percussionist Bonjo Iyabinghi Noah, and featured a revolving cast of members, including Adrian Sherwood, Prisoner, Nick Plytas, Crocodile, Junior Moses, Sunny Akpan, Skip McDonald, Gaudi and Jah Wobble.

‘A bad attitude is like a flat tire - you can’t go anywhere until you change it’. So commences African Head Charge’s new record ‘A Trip To Bolgatanga’ - their first in twelve years. The legendary dub-reggae ensemble’s 2023 return is led by founder-member Bonjo Iyabinghi Noah, assisted by collaborator Adrian Sherwood. After a hiatus, the 1981-founded band’s stunning comeback sees them return to the stage, with a line-up featuring original African Head Charge members. Currently, they fuse djembes, guitars, drums, keys and vocals with heavy electronic sampling and visuals. Their intoxicating live performance will certainly be a balm to anyone’s bad attitude.
