See Bohemian Thought Live with 9 piece band!

A new addition to the culture capital’s colourful crown, Wellington based Bohemian Thought emerges with his debut full length album ‘Magnificent Dyslexic’ which he will release on Dharma Records on the 22nd of August.

To celebrate the release of his debut album Bohemian is throwing 2 indo-afro-Caribbean costume release parties - Thursday the 25th of August at Khuja in Auckland and Saturday the 27th at San Fran Bathhouse in Wellington. Bohemian will perform live, accompanied by his 9 piece band and special guests - Nat Rose & The Babystep Soundsystem in Auckland and Rio Hemopo, Imon Starr, The Newtown Soundsystem - DJ Dozen in Wellington.

Ancestrally hailing from Nigeria Bohemian is blessed with the gift of dyslexia which as a young adult saw him put music aside and instead carve himself a place within the IT industry in London. His dyslexia slipped past almost unnoticed in this world and within this realm he thrived in one way while spiritually starving himself in others.

Curiously at some point during this time Bohemian found words coming to him in the forms of songs which unearthed previously disregarded feelings within himself and inspired him to pursue music. After a brief foray into the spoken word, theatre and poetry scenes in London this new inspiration led Bohemian on a whirlwind journey that landed him in New Zealand in 2006.

A spoken word poet, singer, songwriter and percussionist (a.k.a. poetic philosopher) Bohemian connected with the local Wellington soul, funk, jazz and reggae scenes. After stints spent jamming with Batucada, Sam Manzanza & the Rhythm Africa Band and Olmecha Supreme, Bohemian Thought arrived at a space to develop his own songs with the assistance of Auckland producer Brofessional, The Urban Soul Orchestra (UK), studio engineer Benny Tones and a host of accomplished local musicians.

Bohemian aims to inspire understanding and acceptance through his music which he has termed “true soul” music. A work of true inspiration steeped in triumph over personal struggle, Bohemian Thought delivers a positive message with his debut album ‘Magnificent Dyslexic’ to be released in New Zealand through Dharma Records / Southbound on the 22nd of August 2011.
