Event Description

Hailed by Rolling Stone Magazine as "the next Bob Marley," King Sunny Ade and His African Beats returns to North America for the first time in 7 years with 20 musicians, singers, percussionists and dancers.

Since the evolution of juju music in Nigeria in the thirties no exponent has made a more lasting impact in the genre than King Sunny Ade. As a singer, composer and guitarist, he has succeeded over the years in taking this Nigerian social music type to international heights. Ade came on the scene in 1966 following his induction as a samba player in a small group led by showman and comedian Baba Sala, known in real life as Moses Olaiya. With his own ten piece band, the Green Spots, Ade made his first record in 1967, playing the guitar solos himself. He then blazed into prominence a year later with a hit single which carved him a gold disc as a result of massive sales. Since then Ade has been in the limelight.
