Chopteeth is a 12-piece Afrofunk orchestra exploring the common groove between the funkiest, most hip-shakin’ West African & American popular music on the planet. The core of their sound is Afrobeat: a big-band funk invented by Fela Kuti in 1970s Nigeria. It's a spicy stew of modern jazz, Yoruba tribal music & burning, James Brown-inspired rhythms. Sets feature original compositions along w/updates of African dance classics. Band members step to the mic to serve up lyrics in a total of seven different languages.
