An unmatched opportunity to catch these international festival favourites in an intimate setting.
Specialising in a dynamic fusion of Western, Asian and African influences, their unique world fusion sound has been wowing audiences since the 90’s.
Their music is a blend of tradition and innovation. Famed for their scorching flamboyant live shows featuring fantastic costumes, belly dancing, hypnotic percussion, and members of the group disguised as Nepalese Temple Guardians, no two shows are ever the same as audiences get drawn into an ever more dramatic and exciting performance.
Their debut album, Dream of 100 Nations made the Top 40 Album chart and their single Temple Head was used in the Coca Cola advertising campaign for the 1996 Olympics.
Numerous accolades followed including BBC World Music and Radio Two Folk Awards.
Onstage it’s a joyful and mesmerising journey into the bottomless vaults of the back catalogue featuring original members and more recent and diverse additions to the Transglobal Underground Family.
Over the years they have developed a life of their own and continue with forever changing territory. They lead and everyone else simply follows.
It’s a huge pleasure to announce that, with live music returning again after two years of loss, Transglobal Underground have a UK tour in July to September 2022. It’s been a long time and we’re looking forward to a new start. To all those we won’t be seeing this year, we’re planning get out further in the UK and beyond in 2023.
