Oregon Art Beat


Clip: Season 14 Episode 1419 | 7m 28s

This 11-member band blends the rhythms of Afrobeat legends Fela Kuti and King Sunny Ade with the Godfather of Soul, James Brown. Members of the group come from places as different Nigeria, Cuba and Lake Oswego, and they tell us they actually communicate better through the rhythms than they do through language.
