Kaleta & Super Yamba Band

Kaleta & Super Yamba Band

Kaleta & Super Yamba Band are fronted by legendary afrobeat veteran, Kaleta, aka Leon Ligan-majek, who hails from the Benin Republic in West Africa and is a former touring band member with both Fela Kuti and King Sunny Ade. His 40 + years of experience plus vocals, guitar and percussion are a very exciting addition to an already explosive, irresistibly dancey Super Yamba Band. Kaleta & Super Yamba Band are a psychedelic, afrofunk dance band. They're unique--not another group dogmatically set on re-creating the Fela Kuti afrobeat sound--instead their approach is rooted in a shared passion for the '70s/'80s psychedelic afrofunk sounds from the Benin area, i.e. Orchestre Poly Rythmo de Cotonu, El Rego, and others.
