Afro Beat

Tony Allen played drums for Fela Kuti' s Africa 70 and Egypt 80 organizations, pioneering the unique beat and vibe of Afrobeat music which combines polyrhythmic influences of Africa with the breakbeats and extended jams of the american Funk and R&B which reached Nigeria in the late 60s and early 70s.

The last one psychedelic mix is totally my favourite, the chorus is really sweet, the bassline is forceful, repetitive and really really strong like a "kick in the face".
