Femi and the InRhythms
Femi Sofela leads his 11-piece band in an epic night of afrofunk and afrobeat
Hailing from Lagos, Nigeria, Femi and The InRhythms mix the cerebral musicality of afrobeat with the visceral grooves of funk, underpinned with Yoruba-English vocal styles, to create an eclectic, futuristic world dance music.
This key band from the contemporary African music scene was formed by bassist, singer and composer Femi Sofela to put the heavy afrobeat into funk and jazz, music with which he built his reputation as a musician and producer. Be among the first to hear new music from their debut CD/LP Pressure To Pleasure, released this year on Joyful Noise Records.
