Description

Afrobeat arose from the mind and spirit of Nigeria’s Fela Kuti who, like Beyoncé, is identified on a first-name basis. Throughout the 1970s he fused James Brown’s funk, traditional West African dance rhythms with jazz and his own take on chamber music. Most of today’s afrobeats stars, now in their late 20s, grew up with influences from Hip-hop informing their beats and sampling. Songs became shorter and were produced to sonically fit alongside their counterparts in global R&B and Hip Hop worlds.
