Mukambo and NYP Records unite again for the third volume of the Global Afrobeat Movement compilation. This initiative by Belgian DJ and music journalist Benjamin Tollet aka Mukambo aims to focus on up-and-coming Afrobeat bands from the four corners of the world, as the Afrobeat revival has been expanding globally since the beginning of the 21st century.
20 years after Fela Kuti's death, Afrobeat is more alive than ever. Literally every continent has Afrobeat bands, and it's safe to say there are more than a hundred bands spread over fifty countries. Mukambo created “Global Afrobeat Movement” with the aim of promoting the current global Afrobeat scene.
Afrobeat has become a classical music that’s spreading its tentacles round the world.
Like every other Afrobeat band, we want to be heard by the world as our sounds aren’t just unique, they are well-defined and send a clear message in content and context of uprising issues in Africa. - Lagos Thugs, Nigeria
