Among the new Afrobeat scene bands, some add influences from Latin music or even from more distant style like hard-rock. I would mention for example a group like the Budos Band that claims influence of 70’s metal bands such as Black Sabbath and Alice Cooper.
As mixing of genres is a proof of good health, you’ll be able to hear for yourself the liveliness of the legacy bequeathed by Fela and Orlando Julius in this Afrobeat playlist consisting of powerful riffs spiritually impregnated of headbanger and Flying V guitar…
the Budos Band – Budo Dirge
the Liberators – Cairo Uprising
Antibalas – Beaten Metal
Jungle Fire – Comencemos
Bixiga 70 – Retirantes
