Afrobeat Fever (No. 1)

Afrobeat Fever (No. 1)

This Series covers Afrobeat and its direct musical descendants, Afrorock and Afrofunk .One of the single most influential musical movements of the 20th century, Afrobeat reflects the disillusionment and fervent angst of an Africa awakening from independence to the struggles of an all too modern world. Although wrought from hard political struggle and filled with social commentary, the music’s lyrics never fail to play on the African penchant for wit, satire and irony. Matched with an insistently funky rhythmic backbone, this mixture created a musical sensation that set all of Africa on fire during the 1970's and 1980's.
