Long known for their scorching live shows, legendary Transglobal Underground are back and coming to Brighton for a very special full live band performance.

Transglobal Underground came into being during the electronic dance scene of the early 90s. Pioneers in the mixing of club culture with world music, their first single Temple Head went Top 30 and their debut album, Dream of 100 Nations top 20. Their seventh album Moonshout picked up a BBC World Music award.

They became best known for their live shows which made them festival favourites and have seen them touring worldwide ever since. Along the way, they've been a DJ collective, a techno soundsystem, a Middle Eastern hit production team, a backing group for an Albanian brass fanfare, a seminar, a medicine show and several things that no one involved would admit to if they could even remember them…

Emerging into a new post-Covid, post-Brexit world, the group blew audiences away around the UK in 2022 and 2023. The current lineup is based around original members Hamid Mantu and Tim Whelan and features the UKs best known sitarist Sheema Mukherjee (also of Cornershop, Imagined Village, TUUP, a major figure on the UK storytelling scene), and Rav Neiyyar (Bollywood Band). All appeared on the collective’s most recent release Walls Have Ears, along with other regular members of the TGU family, notably original vocalist Natacha Atlas, who still performs with the band on occasion.
