The Chicago Afrobeat Project is dedicated to breathing new life into a style of music that incorporates funk, rock, jazz, Afro-Cuban, high life and juju music into a single entity that gets the people out of their chairs and onto the dance floor. Call-and-response percussion songs showcase the complexity of the music and are prominently featured on the band’s newest album, (A) Move to Silent Unrest. The Zoo Bar is the perfect place to check out a band that has graced the stages of the Wakarusa, Bele Chere and Chicago World Music Festivals.
