Dele Sosimi at Mercati Generali (Italy)

Nero Express is back this summer with an unmissable event – blues rhythms, African, funk and much more are to be expected! First guest this year: Dele Sosimi, one of the most active and respected musicians of the contemporary Afrobeat scene. Just fifteen , he was already the child prodigy of Egypt 80 Fela Kuti , with whom he played from 1979 to 1986.

 


Keyboardist & Musical Director Dele Sosimi was born in Hackney but returned to Nigeria aged 4 and grew up with the Afrobeat revolution, playing in the Godfather Fela Kuti’s band for 6 years at their peak (he featured on the recent film), and afterwards a decade with son Femi. More recently he’s been hitting London dancefloors hard with all-nighters in hot venues and tunes produced by Nostalgia 77 on the hip WahWah 45s imprint. His 8-piece band includes many of the faces of the London Afrobeat aristocracy.
