[embed width="600"][/embed]


Drum virtuoso Chris "Daddy" Dave, name-checked by ?uesto as "the most dangerous drummer in the world," offers up a head-spinning percussive remix of a Fela Kuti jam. Stick around for the 1-minute mark where Chris does the impossible and ups the intensity and intricacy of an already complex Tony Allen beat.

The whole things was put together by Chris as a tribute to the afrobeat king and inspired by Fela! the musical — which you can still catch on its world tour (currently in Boston, next stop Bmore)! Watch the video, shot/edited by Gerard Victor.

Edit: For all you UK, New Zealanders, et al getting blocked by youtube, here's the vimeo version.
