Baba Ali is the combined force of American performer and musician Baba Doherty and British guitarist Nik Balchin. Onstage, Baba Ali is a captivating and seductive presence, transmitting a wall of sound that fills the room with an infectious raw energy and groove that makes standing still impossible.
Within their first few years, the duo have worked with Jamie Hince (The Kills) and most recently Al Doyle (LCD Soundsystem/Hot Chip) and Joe Goddard (Hot Chip).
From their 2023 album Laugh Like A Bomb, the bold and fiery lead single 'Burn Me Out' serves as a blueprint for what the duo call their ‘electro punk disco’ sound and was premiered by Lauren Laverne on BBC 6 Music. Baba Ali also performed the song for their live television debut on the BBC show Later…with Jools Holland.
Support comes from Fräulein and Joe Goddard (DJ).
