Orlando Julius & The Heliocentrics – Afro-funk / Hi-Life

Orlando Julius & The Heliocentrics (NG)

Alto saxophonist Orlando Julius has none other than Fela Kuti as one of his devoted fans. Julius was one of the first to mix African rhythms and music with American funk, soul, and R&B, and is widely considered to be one of the most influential African musicians from the 1960s and 1970s. With his infectious Disco Hi-Life and his ten-person British band The Heliocentrics, he transforms every festival into a rousing party.
