Tickets still available for Master #Drummer of #Afrobeat, #TonyAllen - Thursday 20th November 2014, 7.30pm #villageundergroundlondon, Shoreditch.

The #rhythm powerhouse behind the late #Fela #Kuti's Afrobeat movement, Tony Allen has continued to push the boundaries of #musical definitions across a career spanning more than 50 years. The pioneer of #jazz and #funk #drumming will be celebrating the launch of his new album #FilmOfLife at #VillageUnderground this November with a night packed full of the same genre-defying innovation he has built his phenomenal legacy on.

Special guests include #AzizSahmaoui & #TheUniversityOfGnawa. Tickets from £16, for booking and more information visit villageunderground.co.uk.

" #TonyAllen has whipped up an Afrobeat stew that includes ethnic grooves, jazz and funk that represent his extraordinarily rich and varied musical background. Perhaps his return to a familiar Paris recording studio has done the trick but pundits are hailing this as his best album for a long time." - #BangkokPost

" #TonyAllen est une légende qui aura su traverser les modes et se les réapproprier avec une incroyable aisance. Fidèle compagnon de #FelaKuti, c'est désormais avec le chanteur de #Blur qu'il accumule les projets. Son nouvel album "Film of life" est un résumé parfait de son parcours sur plusieurs décennies. Rencontre et playlist avec le métronome de Lagos. "
Merci #RF8

" For a man in his mid-'70s, #TonyAllen still has a hell of a lot of reach. In recent years, the legendary Nigerian sticksman—once hailed as the best drummer in the world by #BrianEno—has imparted his Afrobeat influence over artists as diverse as #SebastienTellier, #CharlotteGainsbourg, and #Flea." in #UnderTheRadar.co.nz :
