Chicago Afrobeat Project
True to its original intent as an evolving musical experiment, Chicago Afrobeat Project now angles its afrobeat roots sideways, pushing a vocal-heavy band that drips with slippery funk and rhythmic hip-hop. After years working with Tony Allen, master drummer behind Fela Kuti and the creator of afrobeat, the group’s grasp of afrobeat is uncontested. It’s the deviation from tradition that continues to make the band’s sound contemporary and relevant.
