RIYL: AFROBEAT, Fela Kuti, ORGONE, Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings

Label: self-released

PAO! PAO! PAO! PAO! This is a call to action, to dance, to friendship, a call to love… This is Phoenix Afrobeat Orchestra. ¬†The mesmerizing blend of funk, soul, jazz, african, and R&B styles that make up the sound of this incredible band is finally on a record for the world to hear! ¬†Heavily influenced by the inimitable Fela Kuti, PAO uses their music as a vessel for some really important messages surrounding issues of oppression, women’s rights, and revolution against those who are profiting from the suffering of the poor. ¬†But this is not to say that the music has depressing overtones but rather the opposite effect as it is a rallying call to the masses to get up and speak to the future they see for the world. ¬†As the song “Blossom” so perfectly states “You got to…Plant the seed and watch it blossom…Higher!” ¬†PAO! PAO! PAO! PAO!
