AKRON/FAMILY Check In From Europe

When Akron/Family’s worldwide tour was announced, one particular tour date jumped out at us. On May 24, they were linking up with the Sublime Frequencies tour, and performing alongside Omar Souleyman and Group Doueh, in Bristol, England. These two artists are responsible for two of our favorite releases on the Sublime Frequencies label, and it was sure to be a special night of music. Seth from Akron/Family emailed this brief story about when they met Omar and Doueh and we thought we’d share it, along with this snapshot:

“We got to do one night with the wonderful Sublime Frequencies tour. As soon as Omar and Doueh arrived they came over to hang out in the grass while I was changing the strings on my guitar. Omar was in a full, olive green NBA jumpsuit and sunglasses. Doueh played my guitar and we “talked” in sign language. We got to spend some time with Alan Bishop and Hisham who run Sublime Frequencies too. These guys are truly one of a kind and it was an honor to get to be part of the evening.”
