Item ID: 431644

Spearheaded by legendary Afrobeat drummer Tony Allen (famous
for his contributions to Fela Kuti's best albums), the
Afro-Haitian Experimental Orchestra rose out of Allen's 2014
visit to Haiti where he played with some of the country's most
notable singers and percussionists. Analogue synthesisers and
raw psychedelic guitars join the mix yielding an unheard and
unholy mixture of Haitian voodoo rhythms, Afrobeat drumming and
electronic textures. The album is inspired as much by Krautrock
and Sun Ra as Lagos or Port-au-Prince. Flying on inspiration
and adrenaline, this is roots music for the global future.

Also available: AFRO-HAITIAN EXPERIMENTAL ORCHESTRA (LP).
