The experience and creativity of these established musicians energise the group’s original compositions and the sound of the entire band is a force to be reckoned with. The POAO’s powerful MCs and tribal rhythms are the modern-day “musical weapon” that Fela Kuti conceived of. Their conscious lyrics and West African grooves are relevant today while remaining faithful to the message of afro-beat.
The group is the brainchild of Zvi Belling, Ethan Hill (DJ Manchild) and Tristan Ludowyk who are long- time friends and musical collaborators, each with vast and diverse musical backgrounds to draw upon.
The band’s directors recently travelled to Africa to promote the new single and recorded with African hip hop stars Tumi (South Africa) and Modenine (Nigeria). These artists feature on the band’s ARIA-nominated album “Do Anything Go Anywhere”, which was accompanied by a sold-out 12” vinyl release.
