Never miss another 'Red Snapper' show
Playing a unique blend of instrumental Afro-jazz, funk and hip-hop, Red Snapper is one of the most forward-thinking and ground-breaking bands in the UK, with a huge live reputation across the world.
In this performance, the band plays its newly composed score to the classic Senegalese film 'Touki Bouki' (1973) directed by Djibril Diop Mambéty and restored by Martin Scorsese's Word Cinema Foundation. It's an ambitious project that highlights the band's cinematic tendency, as featured in its critically acclaimed recent album 'Key'.
'Touki Bouki' is a beautiful film about the desperation of young Africans yearning for stability and prosperity. Red Snapper's live soundtrack highlights its dark humour, creating an emotive and surprising experience.
Red Snapper are a band who defy categorisation, taking from a huge range of musical styles and genres to produce murky and hard-hitting tunes with plenty of depth. Previously on Warp Records, the band are known for their live and organic sound which has also included elements of dub, trip hop and drum and bass – all driven by the trademark sound of Ali Friend's double bass.
