Dele Sosimi - EPK-2013

    Hackney, LND, UK | 9:00pm

    Once again we'll be raising the bar with another marathon session keeping the music, spirit & legacy of Fela Anikulapo Kuti alive in London. As always The Dele Sosimi Afrobeat Orchestra will be hitting you up with their mix of originals & classic Fela tracks and DJ Koichi Sakai will be spinning his collection of rare Afrobeat & Hi-Life tunes. Dele Sosimi's Afrobeat pedigree is impeccable. He was keys player & musical director in Fela Kuti’s Egypt 80 and subsequently with Femi Kuti’s Positive Force. More recently he was Musical Director & Afrobeat Music Consultant for award winning musical FELA! at the National Theatre in London. Dele’s pulsating live shows demonstrate his vision of Afrobeat - one that is faithful to the original blueprint, but also clearly bears Dele’s own DNA, expanding the horizons of the genre. His "Afrobeat Vibration" is widely regarded as London's top underground event.

And that’s not all, as part of the late club session, Wah Wah 45s will be welcoming one of their favourite deck technicians in the world, DJ Format, to join them for a late night hip hop, funk and soul party like no other. http://mamacolive.com/thejazzcafe/listings/upcoming-events/10279/dele-sosimis-afrobeat-orchestra-dirty-gentlemen/
