In July Funky Amigos <3 afrobeat! We big up the mbar terrace with a full live band experience. Percussion, check. Horns, check. Dancers, check. Drums, check. Fela Kuti, check check. LIVE: Afrobeat From The Heart feat. Sunny Dada (Afrokoko Roots, NGA) Dj´s Ibou & Magic Sam

Hossni has been paying tribute to the majesty of Fela Kuti for some time now in Helsinki. They started in Caisa performing to a sold out arena and moved the crowd from soulful humming to an absolute leg shake frenzy and then back. They continued in Koko theater and gained praised from all corners. The dance was gorgeous, the visuals striking and then there was the band. That band bringing the rhythms from one corner of the world to another. Uniting and presenting the elevated harmonies and absolute beats of Fela Kuti. Afrobeat From The Heart.

We are proud to bring that band to the mbar terrace stage on the last Friday of July. The Afrobeat From The Heart Band will be featuring a very special guest as the Ghanaian born Nigerian percussionist and vocalist Sunny Dada joins the celebration. Representing the Afrokoko Roots collective from China, Sunny has been supporting the African musical heritage in Asia already for years performing live in various countries. Now he pays visit to Helsinki.

The special DJ guest of the evening is Ibou. He run the Radio OUAGADOUGOU! show in Basso, he rock the club with Issa, Ilari & Sibiri project, here he play dancing music with the host Magic Sam. Bring out the afrobeat freak in you. Come hear!
