Seun Kuti is the youngest son of legendary Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti. At the age of nine, Seun expressed the wish to sing to his father. A short while later, Seun started performing with his father and his band, until his father’s untimely death in 1997. Seun, then only 14 years old, assumed the role as lead singer of of his late father’s band, Egypt 80. Ever since then, Seun has followed the political and social ethos of his father, adding his own twist to the music and digging deep into various African traditions to reflect the continent's struggles and traditions. Seun has since toured the world and released multiple acclaimed albums. About three quarters of the current Egypt 80 line-up consist of musicians that not only played with Fela Kuti, but also often were arrested and harassed alongside the founder of the Afrobeat movement as they forged their way through political turmoil to become one of the most legendary bands in the history of African music.

Brooklyn's Super Yamba Band comprises a unique blend of inspiration born of 70s/80s West-African Afrobeat and Psychedelic Funk, with a live energy that moves everyone in the room to dance.
