A key player in taking fuji music from its local interest into international concert filling music extravanganza.
The music of Naija Grooves is driven by the rich eloquence of the talking drums. The music glides and slides from heavy funk of afrobeat to folkloric rhythms of fuji. Expect heavy duty rhythms from one of Africa's greatest drummers.
