Dele Sosimi Quartet Residency - JAZZ LATES on Friday 13th September 2019

Dele Sosimi’s career began when he joined Fela’s Anikulapo-Kuti’s Egypt 80, where he played phenomenal keyboards for 7 years (1979-1986), the band rising to fame and the founding fathers of the style of music known as Afrobeat.

The music is a blend of complex but highly danceable funk grooves, Nigerian traditional music (including hi-life), African percussion, underpinning the jazz horns and solos from other instruments, as well as rhythmical singing.

Dele was the rhythm keyboard player and toured extensively with around the world with Fela, introducing Afrobeats to the millions…

During Fela’s incarceration in 1984, Femi Anikulapo-Kuti – Fela’s son and Dele’s childhood/school friend took over the reins temporarily and led the band Egypt 80.

During this period, Dele developed his arranging skills as the musical director of the band. He re-orchestrated and re-arranged for the Egypt 80 and also handled the recruiting and training of new musicians in Egypt 80.

Dele played keyboards on the following Fela/Egypt 80 hits, including Parambulator, Power Show, Original Sufferhead, Customs Check Point, MOP 1 (Movement of the People), Give Me Shit I Give You Shit, Authority Stealing, Army Arrangement, Government Chicken Boy, ITT (International Thief Thief), and Teacher Don’t Teach Me Nonsense.

Dele Sosimi stands out as one of the most active musicians currently on the Afrobeat scene worldwide, and it’s an honour to have him with us at Ninety One this summer for the residency.
