Ghanaian vocalist Pat Thomas and his all-star Kwashibu Area Band return with their brand new album ‘Obiaa!’ (Strut). Labelled ‘The Golden Voice of Africa’, Pat Thomas has had a defining influence on highlife, afro-beat and afro-pop, not least through his long-lasting collaboration with Ebo Taylor. The come-back album ‘Pat Thomas & Kwashibu Area Band’ (Strut, 2015) was a triumph that sent him on a massive tour, which also brought the band to Roskilde Festival in 2016. Here the band created a wild dance party and received rave reviews. And the party continues at ALICE, when Pat Thomas & Kwashibu Area Band plays a concert with brand new material and classics in October!
“I’m an afrobeat drummer but Pat Thomas is highlife. That is what he does so well.” -Tony Allen
