Do you know about the style of Afrobeat music?
It originated at the turn of the 1960s and 1970s: a synthesis of highlife and fuji (Nigerian music developed from Muslim morning songs "faith") with funk, jazz and rock.

The creator and main promoter of Afrobeat was the Nigerian composer and multi-instrumentalist Fela Kuti. He coined the term back in 1968, and at first Afrobeat was just a local version of American music. However, after a trip to the United States and communication with African-American musicians and politicians, Fela Kuti began to pay more attention to African roots.

Afrobeat was not only popular far beyond Africa, but also had a great impact on European and American musicians. Among longtime fans of Afrobeat (and African music in general), for example, Blur leader Damon Albarn. In his project The Good, The Bad And The queen is constantly played by Nigerian drummer Tony Allen, a longtime associate of Fel Kuti.
