Concert Alert! CAbP to feature Tony Allen on Mon, 8/27 at The Promontory in Chicago

We are very excited to announce another live collaboration with beatmaster Tony Allen on Mon, Aug 27, 2018 at The Promontory in Hyde Park. After a number of tour dates in 2013-2014 where the band featured Allen, Chicago Afrobeat Project released the critically acclaimed What Goes Up in 2017, with Allen manning the drums.

For this show, the band’s newest additions, rising emcee Legit and vocalist Rhea the Second, join the band for this one-night only performance. Expect a mix of afrobeat, hiphop, jazz, and soul… all centered around Allen’s signaure drum beats.

For What Goes Up, the group is the first and only American afrobeat band to release a full album with Tony Allen, and staying true to the band’s form, shaped each song by flipping the afrobeat foundation sideways. Chicago takes center stage, with local emcees and vocalists such as J.C. Brooks, Legit, Akenya, and Kiara Lanier being featured on each song.
