Elikeh uses elements of Togolese rhythms as a foundation for exploration into American-influenced blues, funk and rock to produce captivating Afro-pop tunes that are as listenable as they are danceable. Although based in indigenous traditions, Elikeh’s music has no borders, exploring global themes and personal odysseys.
Elikeh recently released a new album Between 2 Worlds featuring the Malian guitarist, Vieux Farka Toure and John Kadlecik, lead Guitarist of Furthur and Dark Star Orchestra. In recent months, Elikeh has performed with The Wailers, Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars, Bombino.
In 2013, Elikeh won the Wammie (Washington Area Music Award) for Best World Music Album. The band was also nominated for 6 other Wammies, including Album Of The Year, Artist Of The Year and Musician Of The Year for Massama Dogo.
The band's album was also nominated for Best Word Beat Album by the Independent Music Awards.
