Professor Wouassa

  • Switzerland
  • Solar afro-beat

Grand marabout of Afrobeat, Professor Wouassa – this motley crew composed of musicians mostly originating from the jazz tradition – have concocted a brilliant mixture, a potion devised with hot brass, rhythmic percussion and exhilarating guitars. Transcending the codes of afro-beat, these 11 musicians, all worthy representatives of this very inventive style, generous and uncomplicated, have renewed the music of Fela Kuti with impertinence and informality. Between vintage afro-funk, ethio-jazz and unbridled tropicalismo, Professor Wouassa are guaranteed to have you sweating and swaying right from your very first session. This is no rip-off!
