Afrodizz

Upcoming shOWS:

Soon...

Formed in 2002, this Montreal-based powerhouse has quickly become one of Canada's premiere Afrobeat outfits. Drawing inspiration from the work of the legendary Fela Kuti, these nine stellar musicians use their jazz experience to expand on the foundation sound with a modern urban touch. Afrodizz knows how to make you move and make you think. Their live performances are bonafide dance floor burners. A much-heralded performance over 12 times (2003 to 2013) Montreal International Jazz Festival led them to be chosen as "Revelation of the Year" in the Tropiques series 2003. Since then, Afrodizz became well-known throughout Quebec and Canada, and have performed sold-out shows all around Europe. France, UK, Irland, swiserland, Germany and Netherlands in over ten tours for many differents kind of festivals and venues. After a third album (From outer space 2011 “Winner best World album at the Montréal Mimis”),  the band is now playing on a new show that also includee some rare vintage afrobeat songs from Guana, Benin and Lagos. With Afrodizz, you don't need to know the songs to dance and scream your happiness, the beat will tell you to shake everything you got.
