No foot stayed still when The Scorpios played live on A World in London! Their infectious Sudanese grooves, funky b-lines & horn section, plus Arabic rhythms had us all bursting to dance, sway, and swing! Lead vocals by Regia Ishag and Osman Babo were mesmerising & spot on, singing mostly uplifting heritage songs from their roots in Sudan. They may have been forced to flee their homeland but in their quest to find safety and freedom they landed in London to colllect an equally talented & international team around them that includes Mimi Kobayashi from Japan on keys, Jamaican bass don Ronnie Maxwell, Polish trumpeter Dawid Frydryk, saxophone from improv pioneer Sue Lynch, Adam Bulewski on guitar, IyatraQuartet's Will Roberts on drums, and fellow Sudanese musician Osman Mohammed on darbuka!
EVERYONE loves The Scorpios!!. A new album is scheduled for release in early 2020 and it’ll be debuted on AWIL. Meanwhile, catch them at The Post Bar in Seven Sisters, live on November 23rd alongside Stunflower, Slow Rebelling, and our very own Sophie Darling on the dex, for Same Waves Musicians Series!!
