Chopteeth Afrofunk Big Band
This 13-piece Afrofunk orchestra explores the common groove between the funkiest, most hip-shakin’ West African beats and American popular music. At the core of Chopteeth’s sound is Afrobeat—a big-band funk invented by Fela Kuti in 1970s Nigeria that’s a spicy stew of modern jazz, Yoruba tribal music, and burning, James Brown-inspired rhythms. “A storming powerhouse of big-band African funk, Chopteeth is smart, tight, and relentlessly driving: a definite don’t-miss” (Washington Post).
