Public Opinion Afro Orchestra Return to Melbourne
Melbourne's original (and best) Afrobeat outfit The Public Opinion Afro Orchestra have been laying down infectious, Nigeria-inspired beats and flows to Australian dancefloors for ages.
The massive ensemble, comprised of anywhere up to 20 musicians handpicked from the Melbourne African, jazz and hip hop scenes, was the brainchild of Zvi Belling, Ethan Hill and Tristan Ludowyk - long time friends and collaborators, each with vast and diverse musical backgrounds to draw upon. The result? A seriously fun and original dancefloor experience, and one to be reckoned with. After a recent trip to Africa to promote their new single and a recording session with African hip hop stars Tumi and Modenine, the group are armed and ready with a bevy of slick new material.
