CRYSTAL BAY, Nev. — A 10-piece Afrobeat ensemble that honors the fiery legacy of Nigerian musical revolutionary Fela Kuti will perform a free Crystal Bay Casino Crown Room show on Saturday. Albino’s high-energy grooves and explosive stage show thick with hypnotic percussion, a heavy horn section, African dance, outrageous costumes, and infectious group choreography have firmly established the band as the West Coast’s premier Afrobeat act. “Albino’s inspiriting percussive engine comes from a rhythm section of local all-stars; together, they form rhythms based in the West African tradition which holds at its heart the inseparable union of drumming and dance,” SF Weekly wrote. “Atop the band’s rhythmic maelstrom ride tightly figured five-part horn lines. The section’s ‘heavy heavy’ bottom end features a snarling dual baritone-sax yawp. This is world music that lives up to the name.” Fela Kuti was a revolutionary outlaw who used his music as a weapon to expose and assault the perpetrators of injustice in his native Nigeria and throughout Africa. His principal targets included Nigeria’s corrupt military regime, the post-colonial aristocracy’s repression of native cultures, and corporate greed and the exploitation of Africa’s natural resources and working class. Fela’s Afrobeat crusade for a free, democratic, socially equitable Africa spanned from the early 1970s until his death from AIDS in 1997, when, All Music Guide reported, a “musical and sociopolitical voice on a par with Bob Marley was silenced.” Albino embraces and extends the tradition of Afrobeat as protest music.
