We are proud and pleased to be working with two of our favorite and two of the most legitimate Afrobeat teachers of our time, Tony Allen and Rich Medina! He is one of our favorite people on planet earth and one of the greatest drummers of all time! In addition, Rich Medina is one of the best djs on planet earth today and father of the infamous Jump n Funk parties in NYC!
Fela Kuti, his message and the music he is credited for, means a lot to us. We don't take his heritage in vein and aim to present a very serious homage to his greatness and the impact he has forever left on music lovers around the world.
1015 Folsom is proud to invite you over on July 19 to light the roof of the Mayan on Afrobeat Fire!
