Pan Machine: Ebony Steel Band play Kraftwerk @ Jazz Cafe London
Jan 5 @ 7:00 pm

Following their outstanding 2019 album Pan Machine, Europe’s most prominent steel band Ebony Steel Band join us at The Jazz Cafe to play the music of Kraftwerk in a brand new light.

The original idea was created by music journalist, producer and writer Ian Shirley who approached the band to rework Kraftwerk classics. The search for sonorous clarity had brought him to Pepe Francis MBE, director of Ebony Steel Band, in order to accurately reflect the electronics of the original records.

The show is based on the landmark album with music arranged by Delphina James and released by OM Swagger Music, performed live by Ebony Steel Band.
