Afro Beat - Created By Tony Allen

Bei Afrobeat muss man unweigerlich sofort an Fela Kuti und natürlich dessen Drummer Tony Allen denken. Danke an DJ RICH MEDINA für dieses Tribut-Mixtape!

„Ohne Tony Allen gäbe es den Afrobeat nicht.“ Fela Kuti

Tony Allen has long been acknowledged as Africa’s finest kit drummer and one of the continent’s most influential musicians. His playing draws on four different styles – highlife, soul/funk, jazz and traditional Nigerian drumming. A unique and mighty sound. Together with Fela Kuti (with whom he played for 15 years) Allen co-created Afrobeat – the hard driving, horns rich, funk-infused, politically insurrectionary style which became such a dominant force in African music and such an influence worldwide.
