    FEMI'S THE FUTURE

    On the album "Live At The Shrine" Femi definitely moves the afrobeat genre forward.The songs are more bass oriented and are strongly featured on "Dem Bobo" and "If Them Want To Hear" in particular. The band is tight and Femi's saxophone solos albeit loose are strong. The power of Afrobeat is best captured live and Femi has done a great job capturing the vibe of the music. First time Afrobeat listeners can start here with Femi's vibrant sound, then gravitate to Fela who had more complex arrangements on his recordings. Femi's the future!
