Asiko Afrobeat Ensemble - unknown

You can read my general notes on the festival here. After a brief but intense burst of rain caused some set-shuffling to keep things moving, Foly Kolade's eight-piece afrobeat unit brought the sun back out with their classic Fela-inspired jams. It was nice to see some familiar faces from T.O.'s creative music scenes in the backing band, helping stretch the liquid grooves along and getting a few members of the crowd up and dancing.

* Does anyone know the title to this one? Please leave a comment!
