Steel Pan Fusion stamp their own unique imprint to mark 20 years (twenty years!) since the release of French duo Air’s groundbreaking down-tempo album Moon Safari.


In tribute to Air's seminal album, the eight-piece ensemble will be performing their own take on steel pans. Steel Pan Fusion are a contemporary take on steel pan, jazz and world music, and Moon Safari offers them an opportunity to further develop the fusion of their name.


You can expect experimental arrangements of 90s classics like Sexy Boy and Kelly Watch The Stars, interspersed with solos from each of the eight musicians.



The impact of Air’s 1998 debut album on the fledgling down-tempo electronic genre cannot be understated. The 1990s had seen a wave of artists producing music to be played in “chillout" rooms, with DJs and promoters seeking to bring down the tempo and vibe in clubs around the world. While Moon Safari fits into this bracket, it should be viewed as an accessible pop album in its own right.
