Kaleta & Super Yamba Band

On Sunday, June 26, at 4 PM, the West Kortright Centre presents Afrobeat sensations Kaleta & Super Yamba Band. Super Yamba Band weaves Afro-funk grooves with raw psychedelic sounds. Singer, guitarist, and percussionist Kaleta was a longtime member of Fela Kuti’s band and toured with musical luminaries Lauryn Hill and King Sunny Ade prior to joining Super Yamba Band in 2017. Audience members will hear Kaleta sing in several different languages native to West Africa, including Fon, Goun, Yoruba, and Ewe, along with French and Pidgin English, "the official language of Afrobeat," Kaleta says with a grin.
