Tony Allen Review

NGA (Lagos)

Biography

One of the pioneers of Afrobeat, and perhaps the greatest drummer of all time, Tony Allen, will appear at the festival. He will be joined on stage for the occasion by Damon Albarn (Blur, Gorillaz, Mali Music) and the French rapper Oxmo Puccino. This extraordinary event will be one of only two appearances worldwide that the supergroup will make together this summer! We’ve heard whisperings that they are preparing us a very special performance indeed.
