Abayomy Afrobeat Orchestra celebrates the release of debut album Abayomy at Circo Voador tonight, summoning the spirit of Antibalas, Tony Allen, Lafayette Afro-Rock Band and, of course, the mighty Fela Kuti. Formed in 2009 by a bunch of like-minded musicians from some of the city's better-known bands (including Orquestra Imperial, Letuce and Paraphernalia) for a special one-off show on 'Fela Day', it was the first afrobeat orchestra in the country, and has since cemented its reputation as one of the funkiest live bands around. Three years on to the day, the release of their first record proves that this was no flash-in-the-pan idea, and the show promises to lure out the funk fans for a Sunday night of serious shape-throwing.
