Baba Ken and the Afro-Groove Connexion

 

 

BABA KEN AND AFRO-GROOVE CONNEXION

Picture the sound of Juju music, voodoo ritual chants and rhythms, scratchy American jazz records, with a dash of Fela’s Afrobeat, and you can almost hear Baba Ken and the Afrogroove ConneXion. Every performance is a celebration
of life.
