The Fundamental Nature of Being, Part Five
The Shaolin Afronauts

After an extended hiatus punctuated by rare live performances, The Shaolin Afronauts returned on September 16th this year with The Fundamental Nature of Being, an epic five LP box-set release that expands the sonic vision of the ensemble to towering new heights of burning afro-funk alongside esoteric and ethereal new sonic excursions.

The Fundamental Nature of Being’s expanded musical journey further explores the wide spectrum of the band’s musical identity – with each of the five parts designed as both standalone records, while also offering a singular listening journey across the band’s expansive musical world. This, the final fifth part on the collection, takes the listener into the outer cosmic reaches of the group’s influences leaning into minimal synth-led pieces and new age experimental music.
