Chicago Afrobeat Project

[MIDWEST LAGOS] Chicago is known as the reigning kingdom of the blues and house music, but apparently it’s also a powerhouse for white dudes churning out Afrobeat jams like it’s their lifeblood. The Chicago Afrobeat Project has been serving up a fresh take on the sounds of Fela Kuti to the American masses since 2002, and the dynamic musical collective is a well-oiled funk machine 10 years strong. If you didn’t get enough Afrobeat at the Motet last weekend, head over to the Goodfoot to see up to 14 musicians—including West African percussionists, a full horn section and a dancer—squeezed onto the stage, and most likely spilling right over into the grooving audience.
