Event & Ticket info: http://worldmusicinstitute.org/event/king-sunny-ade-his-african-beats/
Legendary singer, composer, multi-instrumentalist and master African musician King Sunny Adé and his African Beats—a cadre of 17 musicians and singers and a rotation of 5 dancers—return to New York for their first tour of the United States in 6 years. Over the course of a four decade career releasing more than 120 albums Ade is widely considered one of the most influential musicians of all-time.
Rising multitalented star Wunmi will be opening for King Sunny Adé. Currently based in New York, Wumni was born in London and raised in Nigeria. With her irresistible spirit and radical self-designed fashions, Wunmi effortlessly joins the dots between Nigeria’s Afrobeat heritage, New York’s house pedigree and London’s jazz, broken beat and classic street soul sounds.
