Back in 2008 we presented the first-ever Honest Jonís Chop Up!, a riotous feast of music from global artists who all had recorded for the influential West London label Honest Jonís, which specialises in nothing except wonderful music Ė from postwar black music in Britain to African highlife, from 70s English folk to modern Southern Soul.
And now itís back! With another helping of extraordinary artists including a new project featuring Damon Albarn, Afrobeat legend Tony Allen and bassist Flea. Plus Malian singer Fatoumata Diawara, Chicago brass sensation Hypnotic Brass and Detroit techno/house alchemist Theo Parrish.
Honest Jons DJ's perform on Barbican Clubstage immediately after the concert. Bars open til late.
