Hot Music on a Cold Night: Afrobeat Hard Funk

Afrobeat grooves for tonight. 

It was cold and rainy from before sun up till sun set.

Packed the kids up and took them off to see Dr Suess at the cinema.

House full, wouldn’t you know.

So we had hot chocolate on a cold sidewalk.

Kids are in bed at last.

Back to work tomorrow morning bright and early.

Love the cover of this album but dig the music more.

Fela, Tony Allen, Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra, The Ruwenzoris and more.

All steaming stonking grooves to warm your chilly bones.

Good Evening!
