ELIKEH / Press

“…the tunes are wrapped in bouncing ’70s funk/soul and indigenous African rhythms creating the all-important groove. Unlike classic Afrobeat’s sprawling, seriously long jams, Elikeh keeps it relatively tight and dance-floor friendly ”

“Taking a cue from the Fela Kuti-inspired legions of musical protestors as well as the underexposed musical traditions of his native land, (Dogo) and his band Elikeh tear into Adje!Adje!, an album that grooves the way West African music did when it was influenced heavily by Western rock. ”

““…songs about corruption and exile are set against ringing guitars and slow-burning underwater Afrobeat, or Togo’s agbadja rhythm, which echoes roots reggae.” ”
