Sonic Collective Electric Bass w Kayode Kuti WAV
Picking up the bass at thirteen, self-taught Michael Kayode Kuti quickly took to the swaggering hypnotic rhythms of Yoruban juju and highlife music. Though he had originally intended on following the path of serene gospel music, the budding ace was unexpectedly offered the chance of a lifetime when he was asked to join the legendary Egypt 80 band, formed by Nigerian afrobeat star Fela Kuti.
The electric bass playing in this collection reflects this journey: West African bass playing steeped in the Afrobeat tradition, but made for use across genres. Robust, intentional, and always in the pocket, Kayode’s playing is a gift to any production.
