Spain: Afrobeat sensation
- Date published
If Fela Kuti would still walk on this planet, he definitely would come around when the Kokolo Afrobeat Orchestra is in town. Why? Because they accept an inheritance of his funky Afrobeat and cross it with Soul and Funk, like all theses genres been one since decades.
Currently they just well-rehearsed their new album Heavy Hustling and now they come to Spain for some dates to show that handmade breaks and pushing trumpet solos are the real party sound for all those who like to move to organic melodies and harmonies.
So if you have some spare time in the beginning of april try to catch one of their concerts. They are extremly funky and if it does’nt make you wanna move, then you can consider yourself officially dead!
