Very proud to welcome Oslo’s own Flammer Dance Band, a heavy Afro psychedelic outfit from the far north, to the planet rock family. They absolutely blew us away when backing Ghana's infamous "Funky" Rob on his extensive tour of Europe beginning of 2023.
Flammer is being run by a bunch of veteran breakdancers who, years ago, have been perfecting their moves by rocking and popping to the Afro-funk of Rob, Ebo Taylor and Fela Kuti. The energetic 7-piece is all about vintage synths, space out effects, hip shaking grooves, and headbanging breaks! Tight ass rhythm, and quality musicianship, with the freedom, spontaneity and energy of a jam band.
While they are already household names inside their home country, attracting hundreds of listeners (and viewers, as their shows are spectacles) we now want to spread the gospel of Flammer all across Europe.
Flammer have first been recognizing by the international music loving audience when releasing their first 7-inch "Mer / Holder Rytme" in 2020 on their own Lyskestrekk imprint, immediately establishing them as a weird and wonderful act to watch out for.
Their recent, epic double LP "Dedikasjon Til Inspirasjon" is a loose, jam-based affair which seems to owe as much to German experimental music of the 1970es (aka Kraut Rock) as to West Africa and its unstoppable rhythmic explosions.
But, like with all great bands, it is still best to catch this volcano of a collective live in concert.
Flammer Dance Band can be booked through planet rock in Europe (except UK).
