The coconut wireless has relayed the message that Ben Fowler has just returned to his mother country Australia to kick start a new musical project, Benji and the Saltwater Sound System. After a year of village living in remote Solomon Islands this musical excursionist has some new material for Australian audiences, as well as his newly acquired village nickname, Benji.

Benji and the Saltwater Sound System draws upon Benji’s recent immersion in islander flavours and fuses these with the jazz, reggae and African roots of its members past musical projects to create hypnotic soundscapes underpinned by painfully catchy melodies. Add to this the beautifully poignant lyrics that Benji has become known for and you can't help but expect something special from this line-up.
