Fresh from the critically acclaimed Fela! at London’s National Theatre, Band on the Wall & Punch Records presents Dele Sosimi with his very own Afrobeat Orchestra.

From his early discovery as a 16-year-old keyboardist for world-famous Fela Kuti, who brought him into his band Egypt 80, Dele rose to prominence as musical director of the 30 piece band during the 80’s and 90’s.

Whilst at the helm he hatched a plan for a new more aggressive sound, featuring shorter songs and tighter arrangements with Fela’s son Femi Kuti.

The result was the band Positive Force, with whom he toured globally for a decade, honing his craft and exploring all the richness of this amazing music.

The tour will be at the following locations in April:

15 Apr 2011
