about

Tony Allen is one of the greatest drummers on the planet - the man who created Afrobeat with Fela Kuti.
24 years after leaving Fela's band he remains a restless and potent trail blazer for new African musical adventures.

World music diva Grace Barbe is the global ambassador for Indian Ocean music, fusing Afro-rock and reggae with the tropical island rhythms of Seychelles and Mauritius.

Tony expressed an interest in remixing a track after Grace supported him at a Perth festival show a few years back. He has completely rerecorded the song Afro-Sega with his band, retaining only Grace's vocals from the original recording. With a typically masterful live drumming take, Tony's re-imagining gives Grace's song an authentic Afrobeat flavour that will ignite dancefloors across the globe!

Don't forget to check out the animated video clip featuring Grace, Tony and band members performing together in classic toon style!
