Dele Sosimi is arguably the most influential artist working in today’s afrobeat scene in London, and we’re delighted that for so long we’ve been able to call Jazz Cafe the home of his seminal Afrobeat Vibration party. Keeping alive the music spirit of Fela Kuti, Dele also leads Egypt 80 alongside Fela’s son Femi.
His Afrobeat Orchestra continue their residency in 2019 following the sell out success of their 10th anniversary show, playing an extended evening shakedown to keep you dancing.
Support comes from Yung Afrika Pioneers, a diverse group of musicians who have come together to celebrate High Life Music. The YAP include actual veterans of the High Life era as well as younger African musicians and Europeans musicians who are newly discovering the form.
