Elikeh + New Releases / Mixed Bag

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments



This week's show kicks off with a rocking set from Washington DC based Elikeh. Led by Togolese emigre Massama Dogo, Elikeh serves up buoyant blends of Afrobeat and rock mixed with traditional Togolese polyrhythms.

The Elikeh sound is a refreshing mixture, a broader musical palette than most contemporary Afrobeat bands - harkening back to classic Afro-rock bands like Osibisa (the 70s UK-based Ghanaian / Caribbean band cited by Dogo as a primary influence). The band has pan-African flavor too, with musicians from Togo, Benin, Cameroon and Nigeria (Nigerian rhythm guitarist Frank Martins played with the legendary Orlando Julius) - as well as the U.S.A.

Elikeh's excellent debut cd Adje Adje was released last year. Check out http://www.elikeh.com to learn more, and for info on upcoming gigs and to get in touch.

Big thanks: Our illustrious engineer Mark Koch and assistant Josh J.

Nice groove tonight, Rob.

Great show! Might be worth noting, I tried looking this song up, and I found it as "Ocucha Pelo" rather than "Acochapelo"

Stayin' tuned!
