LIVE! Little Dragon's SA Tour

On the surface the quiet port city of Gothenburg doesn't seem like it would harbour much soul music but the dreamy rhythmical shifting moody creature that is Little Dragon is one of the most interesting, and inspiring, sounds to drift over the Atlantic to our shores. As part two of the Adidas Originals Live Performances Series brought to you by We-are-awesome Events, the Swedish electro-soul foursome will be performing in Cape Town on 31 of August at The Old Biscuit Mill and Johannesburg on 1 September at MOAD 2012. Close friends since high school, Yukimi Nagano, Fredrik Wallin, HÃ¥kan Wirenstrand and Erik Bodin have been making music together for most of their lives. In the years since, many industry heavies have recognized the fire. They've earned fans in Gorillaz (whose 2010 LP Plastic Beach includes two songs written and performed with Little Dragon), Raphael Saadiq (who invited Nagano to sing on his new Stone Rollin' album), Erykah Badu (who calls the band "one of my favourites"), DJ Shadow and US heavyweight Big Boi. And it seems that the rest of the world is starting to catch on to what tastemakers have known for years.
