For all fans of Afrobeat, this night is not to be missed! On 24th March 2017 at Kentish Town’s ForumSoundcrash brings together a stellar line up celebrating the genre that changed the world. The bill includes long time Africa Express alumnus Tony Allen; one of the fathers of Afrobeat and master drummer who played with the great Fela Kuti. Fela’s son and longstanding ambassador of West African music Seun Kuti and band Egypt 80 will headline the show. These Afrobeat heavyweights will be joined by London “funk-sci-fi-jazz-psychedelic” band The Heliocentrics. Formed in the late 90’s, they have been creating their particular brand of super galactic jazz funk ever since, and have collaborated with giants as diverse as MF Doom and Mulatu Astatke. XOA and Melt Yourself Down also feature on the bill.  This may just be the best night of 2017, so don’t miss out.
