On Friday, April 27, the cosmic Afrobeat spaceship of Golden Dawn Arkestra lands at Levitation, with Algerian desert blues 5-piece Imarhan + afro-Columbian outfit Superfonicos.
Golden Dawn Arkestra's psychedelic funk spectacle is well known in Austin as one of the best parties in town, and lately they've been exporting thier Sun Ra-inspired freak outs on tour around the world. Expect deep grooves and space ritual spectacle from the 10+ piece Arkestra. Imarhan's new album Temet comes out in February, and the band have been haralded as "the new wave of Taureg music", bringing fuzz, funk and a shimmering haze to the desert blues sounds brought to the world by elder statesmen Tinariwen.
