We are pleased to announce”This is AFROBEAT” at BSP Kingston with Jonathan Herrera aka DJ Sterling alongside resident DJ Shaman Vybez. They will be showcasing Latin American and African music that created the Afro Beat sounds. Dj Sterling had recently visited Guatemala and was inspired with the music he had heard while on his visit. He called up Shaman Vybez and asked if he was down to rock a party featuring AfroBeats, Cumbia, Latin, Reggae, Boogaloo and Reggaeton. So “This Is AfroBeat” was created.
Afrobeat is a music genre which developed in the 1970s out of a combination of West African musical styles, such as Juju Music,It began in Nigeria in the early 70’s with Ghanaian influences. Nigeria’s most referred, mainstream, internationally toured and Grammy recognized Country music, Fuji music, which was influenced by the western ensembles borrowed from its leading native category (the Juju music) and high-life together with American funk and jazz, with a focus on chanted vocals and percussion.
