Akoya @ Southpaw Tonight!

Akoya Afrobeat Ensemble, the premier afrobeat group in North America, is throwin down tonight at Southpaw in Park Slope, BK along with The Revelations ft. Tre Williams. As Chris May of All About Jazz put it so eloquently, very few bands can create the gargantuan, multi-layered sound that not only pays homage to Fela's innovation but expands on his legacy. If you consider yourself even a casual fan of afrobeat, you owe it to yourself to see Akoya in their natural habitat, tonight.
