Ludovic Navarre, known to many by his music moniker as St. Germain has announced the first wave of 2016 spring North American tour dates. On the heels of his first full-length in 15 years, the French producer and live musician has been touring across Europe over the past couple months and will continue to do so through November, but is gearing up to bring the band over to the United States for the first time in nearly a decade.
The tour will feature an 8-piece band that will include the Kora, guitar, the Ngoni, a bass player, percussionist, keyboardist, saxophone and of course Navarre.
The tour kicks off on March 31 at Washington D.C.'s famed 9:30 club, before hitting other cities along the east coast and Canada like Boston, New York City, Quebec and Montreal. The tour will then head to the middle of the country for some gigs in Chicago, Detroit and St. Paul before finishing in Denver and Vancouver. California is conspicuously missing from the tour, which means it is likely to be part of the next wave of tour dates coming for North America.
In addition to the tour, St. Germain has unveiled a new video to his album track "Sittin Here."
