Tony Allen Tour Dates

Tony Allen was one of the founding fathers of afro-beat, his drumming style influenced generations of musicians over the past 50 years.

An original member of Fela Kuti’s Africa 70 and the inventor of the distinctive afrobeat drum rhythm, Tony went on to collaborate with artists from King Sunny Ade to Damon Albarn, continued to be a true innovator with his own music for decades, drawing on electronics, dub, rnb + rap in a synthesis he refered to as ‘afrofunk’.

He died in April 2020 at the age of 79.
