Get ready to DANCE because this week on Discovery Corner on BTR I’m featuring the Dublin, Ireland afrobeat sensations Colours Afrobeat Foundation! The band is fronted by the always charming and positive Boye Akerele with whom I was able to speak through Skype. They were a DJ Meredith pick and Akerele is eternally grateful to the “Queen of Vinyl” as he refers to her. I’ll be playing tracks from their debut EP Prayer for World Peace with another little gem of theirs thrown in. Akerele and I spoke about the advantages of social media for those not of Generation Y, his beginnings hearing afrobeat in his native Nigeria, and what it takes to have the chops to be in his band. Dance on!
