And so it’s official: drummer TONY ALLEN and Chicago Afrobeat Project will reunite for an 8-city tour this summer/fall in the Midwest and East Coast. Last summer’s chemistry felt so great during the studio recording that we decided to collaborate again and book an entire tour. We will hit you with some of the newly recorded material, and there will be a few surprises with even NEWER material. The yet-to-be-titled album is set for release in early 2015.
Tony helped make afrobeat an iconic landmark on the global music scene, and we excited to be a part of this history.
