In the 10 years since its birth from Chicago’s underground art and loft party scene, Chicago Afrobeat Project has performed coast to coast at clubs and festivals across the United States. 2013 marks the release of “Nyash Up!” the band’s fourth official album project and its best sounding, best produced release so far. Over the years the group has defined and redefined their signature version of afrobeat. Their latest work is reaching into new territories incorporating elements of hip-hop, orchestra-like musical arrangement, and exciting stylistic exploration touching on rock, jazz and funk.
