The Funk Of Africa

We celebrate the best funk from across the ages to emerge from the great continent of Africa in the company of Ghanaian musician Afla Sackey and friends.

A genre that is maybe not as notorious as afrobeat or Ethio jazz, funk has nevertheless played a crucial role in the musical growth of Africa through the 20th century, with the likes of Manu Dibango, Francis Bebey, Mulatu Astatke, Tony Allen and Fela Kuti all imbuing its characteristics in their own music.

Afla Sackey & Afrik Bawantu bring their musical dream of blending traditional Ghanaian music with sizzling afrobeat grooves, highlife and afro jazz to life, topping it off with an irresistibly funky twist.

Their unique blend of vibrant African rhythms with fast, animated horn sections and heavy bass lines brings a whole new definition to the afro funk genre.
