♬♬ Afrodizzie ♬♬
London's finest young talent collaborating with Fela Kuti (Egypt 80) and Baba Maal musicians. Sharing life lessons and music to create Afrobeat with a Landan twang.
The project began in 2008 as a studio project. After 2 years of informally recording ideas and inviting musicians to their studio to turn shared life experiences into songs, an evocative collection of music was spawned that was crying out for a big band to play.
Since January 2012 Afrodizzie has turned from a studio project to a fully operational conglomerate of like-minded individuals who meet to offload their 'High-Life', 'Soukous' and 'Afrobeat' compositions.
In 2014 Afrodizzie released they debute album "Masta Copy" (Kanuga Records) and the Single "Solid" (CME Records). After an extended break, the band is now preparing to return to the stage with a smashing new live show!
