Description

Christened the James Brown of Africa, Sila sings of the African
experience: the problems he and many others face every day, in a language
understood throughout the world. His lyrics and beats reflect the music, the
language, the energy, and the spirit of growing up in Africa. Like Afro-beat founder Fela Kuti, the band is known for extended rifts that drive audiences into dancing ecstasy. Sila won the coveted NAACP Image award for "Outstanding World Music Album" and the San Francisco Weekly music award for "Best International Act." SILA's highly anticipated solo album and comic book "SuperAfrican" is due out this summer.
