Afrobeat was a genre of music born in the 1960s in Ghana and then followed by other West African countries. The music combined traditional musical styles of the region such as Highlife alongside the influence of American Jazz, Soul and Funk. The most prominent Afrobeat figure was the Nigerian musician Fela Kuti. Not only did he popularise this musical style in Western Africa, but globally too; often using it to carry a strong political message.

Description

Part of a collection of thirty original compositions and arrangements entitled Ba-Da-Boom Brass.

Inspired by the heritage and culture of world and historical brass-related styles.

We hope this repertoire will prompt a growing inquisitiveness for brass players of all ages and styles and was created with a brass club or gathering in mind.

Set at a moderate / training band standard, these pieces can be played by a flexi group of mixed brass instruments plus assorted optional percussion.

A minimum of 4 brass players is necessary, but the maximum is limitless.

All 4 brass voices have occasional divisi passages; in these instances more texture and harmonic colour is added.

In the instance of using just four brass players, playing just the top part in each case will provide a cohesive performance.

“The entire programme can be likened to a sumptuous feast, with each track having its own highly delectable and thoroughly satisfying flavour. The CD is surely compulsive listening for all brass and percussion enthusiasts.”

C Brian Buckley

“All cleverly arranged and beautifully played, with excellent sonics.”
