Newen Afrobeat

June 15 @ 19:00

We present a night of irresistible rhythms with the very first afrobeat band to come out of Chile’s thriving music scene: Newen Afrobeat.

Combining African traditions with their Chilean musical heritage, they use their music as a powerful weapon. They’re a Latin American response to the legacy of the great Fela Kuti, creating a groove machine of impressive proportions and carrying important messages of social liberation.

Their incendiary live show consists of 15 musicians, fronted by a powerful trio of female singers/songwriters, and oozes high energy. They bring their own unique musical vocabulary to the genre whilst collaborating with greats like Tony Allen, Femi and Seun Kuti, helping to cement their esteemed position within the afrobeat community.

If you’re a fan of Fela and the afrobeat sound you can’t afford to miss this.
