This review is from: Lagos No Shaking (Audio CD)
There is no doubting the all pervasive influence of Fela's afrobeat in this work. This is a fruit of Tony Allens relationship with Fela and this work validates his pedigree as one of the creators of the 70's afrobeat rythm that still shakes the world today.
Undoubtedly his best work so far, this is an attestation to the uniqueness and the boundless influence of afrobeat as the only music form that not only expresses the link that exists between african music and other modern music forms, but clearly validates african music as the progenitor of Funk, rhythm and blues, rap, jazz, rock etc.
A must own for avid fans of Fela, Antibalas, Femi Kuti, Thievery Corporation, Red Hot Chilli peppers, Lagbadja etc.
