Afro Beats Abroad 1: Dele Sosimi and his Afrobeat Orchestra
21/11/2014, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Dele Sosimi and his Afrobeat Orchestra are bringing Nigeria’s iconic popular music to Cardiff. Afrobeat emerged as a hard-hitting music of resistance and social commentary. Pigin English vocals soar over contemporary R&B grooves, Dele’s soulful keyboards interlocking with funk guitar, and a barrage of percussion and horn arrangements. Beyond its political message, Dele’s brand of afrobeat is irresistible dance music that will sound familiar to first-time audiences and sublime to die-hard fans.
