Win Tix: Lagos Roots: Afro-Beat Ensemble | The Chapel

Friday, January 19, 2018 - 8:00 pm | Cost: WIN
The Chapel | 777 Valencia Street, San Francisco, CA 94110

Fronted by Geoffrey Omadhebo (Sonny Okosuns, One World), this 15-piece afrobeat orchestra brings it back, straight to 1970’s West Africa. Lagos Roots present a version of unfiltered, deeply-grooved Nigerian/ WestCoast Afrobeat that follows a direct path to the beginnings of the genre.

> Get Tickets – $18 Adv / $20 Door

The band’s performances feature a healthy blend of Fela Kuti & Africa 70 classic repertoire with Omadhebo’s own politically charged compositions, and in classical afrobeat fashion, the music speaks for itself, offering audiences a sharp reminder of the ability of live music to capture a political and historical message and spin it back to the public in a contemporary and provocatively musical way.
