Alma Afrobeat Ensemble Plays at The Cedar

 

Barcelona-based Alma Afrobeat Ensemble features nine bandmates from eight different countries.  The foundation of their music is, of course, Afrobeat, but you can hear strong influences of funk and even hip hop.  KFAI's Ryan Dawes spoke with guitarist Aaron Feder about the roots of Afrobeat, the music scene in Barcelona, and the collaborative essence of Alma Afrobeat Ensemble.

Alma Afrobeat Ensemble performs at The Cedar Cultural Center on May 22 with Jaedyn James and the Hunger.
