Tony Allen

Vrai nom:
Tony Oladipo Allen
Profil:
Nigerian drummer, composer, and songwriter who lived and worked in Courbevoie, France.

Born: 20 July 1940 in Lagos, Nigeria.
Died: 30 April 2020 in Paris, France (aged 79).

Allen began working as a studio engineer. He definitely rose up when he played drums for Fela Kuti's Africa 70 and Egypt 80 organisations, pioneering the unique beat and vibe of Afrobeat music which combines polyrhythmic influences of Africa with the breakbeats and extended jams of the American funk and R&B, which reached Nigeria in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Afrobeat music has since re-influenced western dance music in fusion genres like broken beat (e.g. groups like Bugz In The Attic, et al.) and future jazz (e.g. groups like Allenko Brotherhood Ensemble, et al.).

Allen released solo afrobeat and psychedelic funk albums on his own, and is notable for his contributions to the supergroup Psyco On Da Bus, amongst others.
