if you have a minute (or eleven…).



with AFRO FUNKĒ’s 8 Year Anniversary coming up in just under 48 hours, i find myself reminiscing about the pivotal and defining tunes that Jeremy Sole dropped in those early days, the ones that got me hooked and wide open. as J would tell you, the night was built around the incredible amalgation of sounds that became the trademark of Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s ‘Afrobeat’ music. so, i’m gonna post a few of the tunes that–in my mind, as a longtime fan, friend and member of the Afro Funke’ family–have defined the Afro Funkē sound.

This is Fela’s “Water No Get Enemy”, from 1975.
