AFROBEAT (VOLUME ONE CONTINUING FOREVERRRRR)

Starting in the late 1960's and still going strong with the phenomenal influence of TONY ALLEN and the late FELA KUTI, AFROBEAT remains one of the more popular genres. Hundreds of groups from a around in the world continue their own unique versions of AFROBEAT like Ottawa's own internationally loved SOULJAZZ ORCHESTRA, the LONDON AFROBEAT COLLECTIVE, the BUFFALO AFROBEAT COLLECTIVE, EKO AFROBEAT, SYSTEMA KALUKUTA, the CHICAGO AFROBEAT PROJECT, BAOKU, FANGA, the KARA-KATA AFROBEAT GROUP, ANTIBALAS, and Spain's ALMA AFROBEAT ENSEMBLE, just to name a few! We have included recordings from Chile's NEWEN AFROBEAT and British sensations KOKOROKO and the EZRA COLLECTIVE. We conclude this show with various remixes and collaborations.
