Video: Dele Sosimi Cooking Sweet

Dele Sosimi - Short Film / EPK from Chris Walsh (Dreadnought Media) on Vimeo.

"I'm not sure whether I like it or I need it"...

Good genetics could fool you in to thinking Dele Sosimi has to be a second generation Afrobeat artist, but he is as much a living piece of history as Tony Allen, having played keys in Fela's band Egypt 80 from 1979-1986. It's beautiful to see a musician who has been playing for so long still as excited and passionate as they were at the start. For some reason I've never been to one of his nights, the last Saturday of the month in Hackney, but after watching this I might just have to go.
