Warehouse find, limited stock; originally released in 2002. In the strict sense, Afrobeat, which means African beat, refers to all African-oriented musical forms. These idioms have been there for centuries. Even Fela Anikulapo Kuti, the highly celebrated Afrobeat icon who took his inspiration from this vast resource later realized the non-specificity but all-embracing nature of Afrobeat as a nomenclature. He renamed it classical African music upon his release of Beast Of No Nation in 1984. This CD is therefore unique in that aside from helping to vividly explain this intriguing point, it has also explored the depths, dimensions and possibilities of African music. As a showcase for various artists with different materials, performances are naturally varied. But the interesting thing about this variety is that within the ambit of African beat, various dimensions with different approaches have emerged. Some of them predate Fela's emergence while others parade fresh and invigorating styles that have opened up new fields for musicians to explore. Featuring artists Awa-KLaSH, Dele Sosimi, Seyi Sholagbagde, Jagunlabi, Duro Ikujenyo, Fatai Rolling Dollars, Ayetoro, Tamedun, Olufumi, Imo, Duro Ikujenyo and Kayode Olajide. Limited remaining stock.
