“A fulsome evocation of Fela Kuti’s continually inspiring blend of The J.B.’s-style jazz-funk horns, lashed to a relentless mix of funky highlife and Yoruba..” (Time Out London). The nine-strong, London Afrobeat Collective, are an incendiary live act who channel the spirit of the Afrobeat founder, Parliament Funkadelic and Frank Zappa to create bass-heavy rhythms, hypnotic grooves and soaring melodies - guaranteed to get you moving.
