The Fundamental Nature of Being, Part Three
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 third part in the collection starts to explore influences from spiritual & free jazz sounds while still retaining the band’s rich pallette of pan-african grooves.
