The Nigerian-British Afrobeat Ambassador, Musician and Educator, has been at the heart of the global Afrobeat ever since he joined Fela Kuti's 'Egypt 80' in his teens.

Over forty years later, he remains a tireless ambassador for the unique musical movement all over the world. His blend of complex funk grooves, traditional Nigerian music, African percussion and an underlying sense of jazz combines with his virtuoso keyboard skills and rhythmic singing to make him one of the most respected Afrobeat authorities of his era.

Dele has performed all over the planet, from the Montreux Jazz Festival to Mawazine Festival in Rabat Morrocco; Ollin Khan in Mexico, South Korea and the Copenhagen Jazz Festival.

“Something special.. an exclusive first play of a brand new single from the Afrobeat legend Dele Sosimi.” Jamie Cullum (BBC Radio 2)
