D.C.'s Elikeh Drop New Afropop Album, 'Adje! Adje!'

Hear a taste of D.C. band Elikeh's sophomore album, 'Adje! Adje!'

Coming from the cultural melting pot of Washington D.C. and led by Togolese singer/guitarist Massama Dogo, Elikeh is downright dirty. Their recently-released sophomore album, Adje! Adje!, features afropop with politically-driven lyrics, blaring horns, super funky guitars and a brilliant rhythm section. While Dogo provides a flawless Afropop “foundation” to the album, former Femi Kuti drummer Tosin Aribisala and the distorted shredding of guitarist John Lee take the music to another level. Watch the above video for a taste of Elikeh's live show. Head to their website for the full album.
