The Souljazz Orchestra is another newly discovered band (for me). Their 2012 release Solidarity is a nice mix of afrobeat fueled funk with a couple reggae inspired tracks thrown into the mix. They are already promoting a new release called Inner Fire for February 2014 backed by a Canadian and European tour. Hopefully they will make a return trip to DC (Rock & Roll Hotel in 2012, which was before I discovered them...doh). Couple official videos up on YouTube: Ya Busta Bibinay Jericho
Another slamming afrobeat band, this time from England - London Afrobeat Collective. By now you should know the drill when it comes to afrobeat: multi-piece bands (usually 10-12 people), killer horn section, driving percussion, and songs that stretch into the 10 minute plus range. Their new album, Food Chain, will be released May 25, 2015, with album art work by Ben Hito. Their debut album, L.A.C., was released in 2010.
