Item ID: 431645

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. This LP is pressed on 180-gram vinyl and includes a download.
