Osekre & The Lucky Bastards 'Mama Told Me'

Osekre & The Lucky Bastards release their newest African music song titled "Mama Told Me" and announce date for upcoming NYC performance.


If the spirits of Fela Kuti and The Clash could come together, they might manifest in Ghanaian-American afropunk Osekre. Osekre and his band The Lucky Bastards came together to produce a meaningful mash-up of afropop rhythms with punk-like vocals in their newest track titled "Mama Told Me." The song comes to life with afrobeat-stemming percussive elements backed by a rhythmic guitar, bouncing horn section, and brought together by mama's words of wisdom. This refreshing energy suits the whole family, keeping feet and heart happy as Osekre finally gives us a reason to move to mom's lessons. Listen to the 'cloud below to hear the loving sounds and make sure to check out Osekre and the Lucky Bastards in-person, with guest MEAN LADY this Friday Aug. 9th 9PM at Joe's Pub.
