ALBINO! "Heavy Heavy Afrobeat" / Bio

The SF Music Award winning band ALBINO! is a San Francisco Bay Area-based 10-piece Afrobeat ensemble that honors the fiery legacy of Afrobeat inventor Fela Kuti by melding tightly crafted arrangements and jazz-tinged harmony with propulsive, high energy grooves. Whenever this funk-fueled juggernaut performs, ALBINO! re-acquaints listeners with what it feels like to truly groove, and infuses audiences with an ecstatic energy that pours forth from the stage. Witnessing all ten members of this garish behemoth locking into choreographed step is as much of a feast for the eyes as the band's deliciously layered funk is for the ears. According to the SF Weekly, "This is world music that lives up to its name."
