Saluting The Black President - Fela Kuti: Ginger Baker + Tony Allen + Dele Sosimi & The Afrobeat Orchestra + Blak Twang + Afrikanboy + Briese + Shingai Shoniwa + Ty
Starting out in 1960 as a jazz drummer, influenced by Art Blakey and Max Roach, Nigerian drummer, composer and songwriter Tony Allen is now known alongside Fela Kuti as one of first founders of Afrobeat, and as one of Africa's finest kit drummers - "perhaps", as Brian Eno once mused, "the greatest drummer who has ever lived".
Tony Allen tour dates
Dele Sosimi made his name as pianist with Fela Kuti, and his ten-piece outfit specialises in a modern interpretation of Kuti's music.
Dele Sosimi & The Afrobeat Orchestra tour dates
Aka Tony Rotten who is one of the pioneers of UK hip-hop and a Mobo award winner.
Blak Twang tour dates
Afrikanboy tells his words of wisdom, tales of immigration difficulties and of what life is like in Britain for him. Whilst being on tour with M.I.A he has opened shows for artists such as Bjork and Prince.
Afrikanboy tour dates
Born in Nigeria but raised in London, Ty takes in a myriad of influences, as is evident on his recent collaboration with Femi Kuti's drummer, Tony Allen. A product of the North London spoken word/ poetry/hip-hop scene. After his 2001 debut 'Awkward' on the BigDada label Ty has busied himself touring and performing with like-minded artist Biznizz and recording his follow up. A rare and genuine talent. Check him!
