  • Afro-beat from NOMO.

Afro-beat from NOMO.

Nomo

While touring with their band, Saturday Looks Good to Me, saxophonist Elliot Bergman and poetic songwriter Fred Thomas found themselves hitting the rewind button on the van’s tape deck a lot. Enraptured by the Afro-beat sounds of Fela throughout the duration of their tour, by the time they made it back home, it was decided that they should start their very own Afro-beat outfit. Enter NOMO, an Afro-beat band that touts membership of several SLGTM players and, as Thomas describes, “lots of horns and percussion … short of string sections and played to the hilt.” Word on the street is that NOMO is one of the best live shows to catch in Detroit.
