So much funk going on, so what do you do? You share this groovy goodness and introduce the sounds of Grant Phabao Afrofunk Arkestra. Paris DJ’s released the band’s eponymous LP last month and what a corker it is!
The record features an array of over 20 guests including Tony Allen, Oghene Kologbo, Sandra Nkaké, RacecaR, members of Antibalas, The Breakestra, Brownout, Fela Kuti’s Egypt 80, Jungle Fire, Les Frères Smith, Ebo Taylor’s Afrobeat Academy, Osemako…coming from Paris, Berlin, Lagos, Washington, Austin or Los Angeles!
First track Talking & Singing is deliciously smooth and funky. Opening with a bold crash of a cymbal it then slinks along with juicy flute, funky guitar, keys and ice cool vocals..so yummy! Check it out above and listen/purchase the whole album from here.
