Osibisa: British Afrobeat band Thursday 23 April 2020 21:15 Boisdale of Canary Wharf Restaurant

British Afrobeat band, founded in London in 1969 by four expatriate African and three Caribbean musicians. Their music is a fusion of African, Caribbean, jazz, funk, rock, Latin, and R&B and highlife.
 

The British pioneers of Afro-fusion and godfathers of world music have achieved an astounding five decades of global success and their live set is a musical adventure, a journey of spirit and a show not to miss.

Formed in London by three Ghanaian and three Caribbean musicians in 1969, Osibisa joined jazz, funk, Caribbean, R&B, Latin and African rhythms together to create something that changed world music forever.

With major hits including ‘Music for Gong Gong’, ‘Sunshine Day’, ‘Dance the Body Music’ and more, this legendary band have played a central role in developing an awareness of African music among European and North American audiences from the 1970s to the present day.
