About the Event

MUSIC:

8 musicians. One goal. To increase the positive energy in the world by making people dance!

London Afrobeat Collective are a tight-knit family of musicians from around the world, living in London and united by a love of afrobeat and a desire to take original music to new places.

From Europe to Africa, Glastonbury Festival to Felabration in Lagos, they deliver party-music born of their truly global DNA.  The 8-strong collective from England, Italy, France, Congo, Argentina and New Zealand combine traditional afrobeat with funk, jazz, rock, Latin and dub to create something unique.

In the early days, the band received a major boost when their 2010 debut album L.A.C. propelled them through the Glastonbury Emerging Talent contest to opening the West Holts stage in 2011.   A host of festival dates followed (Bestival, Secret Garden Party, Green Man, Cheltenham Jazz Festival) and by 2015, when they released their second album Food Chain, they began to tour in continental Europe, whilst continuing to appear at UK festivals, and maintaining a regular presence at London venues.

The band combines a love and respect for the traditions of afrobeat with a willingness to create original music that crosses genres.  They were honoured to be invited to play at Felabration at the Shrine in Lagos as part of their Nigerian tour and have collaborated live and in the studio with afrobeat greats Dele Sosimi and Tony Allen.

Performing in English, Spanish, Lingala, Yoruba and French and mixing traditional afrobeat with funk, jazz, rock, Latin and dub influences, London Afrobeat Collective developed an original sound that helps them to connect with diverse audiences.
