The Source

The Source

Having codified the rhythm of Afrobeat during his many years with the great Fela Kuti, drummer Tony Allen brings an authoritative air to The Source, his Blue Note debut. Based in Paris, he recruited the finest of French musicians and built a band with great creative endurance and deep soul. Horns, pumping bass and drums, an electric piano timbre so specific to Afrobeat: The Source is a swirl of sounds held together by Allen’s elastic and indefatigable beat.
