Songs From An Open Road present… Allen Taylor’s Afrobeat Orchestra

Formed in 2006 from a group of Nigerian friends & musicians that had settled in and around Dublin over the preceding 6 years Adeniyi Allen-Taylor’s Afrobeat Orchestra perform Afrobeat and High Life music from their Nigerian (Yoruba) roots. Lead singer, saxophonist, organist, composer/arranger Adeniyi Allen-Taylor originates from Abeokuta in SW Nigeria the birth place of Fela Kuti. He is joined on stage by his wife Tomilola the chorus leader and soloist alongside her fellow choristers drawn from the Dublin African Gospel Choir of which she is the musical director.

Their repertoire is all written, composed and arranged by Adeniyi and his wife Tomilola with a few members of the band and includes some inevitable musical references to the Kuti dynasty. Some band members had previously played with or for Femi Kuti.

With a line-up that includes Tenor, alto and baritone sax alongside the trumpet and a 3 piece chorus section their sound is big bold brassy and soulful; on some occasions with special guests there are over 20 on stage! No longer just a band, Adeniyi Allen-Taylor’s Afrobeat Orchestra had arrived. Their infectious Afrobeat rhythms assured to keep your feet busy.
