Two events in South Devon for Devon Afrobeat Collective
Come and dance with us!
Must get myself organised to go along to this.
Just noticed this wonderful young afrobeat band at Ronnie Scott’s May 8th
Now how can I manage to get there? Take some unpaid leave maybe. The band is focused around 3 young Nigerian women who comprise a stonking horn section in a band designed to get you dancing.
Get in touch if you are interested in making the trek up there too.
The wonderful Bass player Barry Cohen invited me to be part of the Devon Afrobeat Collective as musical director and keyboard player. 2 Rehearsals down the line and we are starting to think about gigs.
Our starting point is a handful of Fela Kuti numbers and we are working out from there. Watch out for us in your neighbourhood soon.
