Alma Afrobeat Ensemble returns to Barcelona!

After a summer spent touring around France in support of our new album, “Life No Get Dublicate”, we bring the rolling thunder that is the Alma Afrobeat Ensemble back to Barcelona in the Masimas Festival to celebrate the release of the book “Fela Kuti: Espíritu Indómito” on August 9th. The evening begins with the presentation of the book, the first biography of Fela in the Spanish language, at the Glaciar Bar on Plaza Real at 10 pm. Then at midnight the AAbE will play a special set paying tribute to Fela, featuring songs we love from Fela’s catalog, plus some of our own tunes. After we are done, DJ Floro will take the DJ booth to spin some great Afrobeat and more, as he always does!
Tickets are only 10 euros if you get them online now! Click here to purchase tickets.

We will see everybody out there on the dance floor!
