”There is no question that Tony Allen is a genius, one of the greatest percussionists in the history of popular music.” - The Guardian

Today living in Paris, Nigerian born Tony Allen has long been acknowledged as Africa's finest drummer and one of it's most influential musicians, the man who with Fela Kuti created Afrobeat - the hard driving, James Brown funk-infused, and politically engaged style which became such a dominant force in African music and whose influence continues to spread today. Tony Allen has inspired generations of musicians worldwide and is a legendary figure amongst fans of funk, jazz, hip hop and African music.
