Global Afrobeat eFestival

Afrobeat’s rise in global popularity in the past decade has unavoidable. With a rich history based on instrumental figures such as Fela Kuti, Tony Allen, and Oghene Kologbo dating back to the late 60s, it is more than a commercial fad.

To commemorate this Rhythm Passport is co-hosting the online Global Afrobeat E-Fest on Saturday 23rd May with Belgian DJ, radio presenter, and music curator Mukambo. This mini-festival will include live music, DJs, and discussions streamed via Facebook, all in the name of afrobeat.

16.00-16.30 Talk 1: Tribute to Baba Tony
