We’re jazzed around her for the upcoming Seun Kuti show at House of Blues. That doesn’t mean we can’t indulge ourselves in Afrobeat of a local flavor. Chicago Afrobeat Project pays homage to Fela without sounding like a clone of the founder of Afrobeat. Their sound incorporates Afro-Cuban music, Afican high life and straight up jazz to give a refreshing twist to the persistent rhythmic trance of other Afrobeat acts, and their live act has been honed to a razor sharpness through years of gigs.
Chicago Afrobeat Project comes to Martyrs’ for a show tomorrow night at 9:30 p.m. and they’ll be testing out some new songs on stage. Opening for CAbP is Subplane. Tickets are $10 in advance; $12 at the door.
