Live from the Westword Music Showcase on June 21st, WeedStream captured local Afrobeat band Atomga.
ATOMGA is building an empire for fevered, afrobeat-influenced dance parties.
However, staging sweaty dance parties is not ATOMGA's only intention. Consciousness is something this 10-piece afrofunk collective takes very seriously. Since their inception in 2011, they have meticulously studied the hypnotic grooves and lyrical prowess of afrobeat’s forefathers in order to maintain musical integrity and positively contribute to afrobeat in a modern setting. ATOMGA’s music encourages their listeners to wake up and grasp life with awareness as they humbly tackle socially conscious topics such as human rights; corporate greed; environmental advocacy; government oppression and last, but not least, the need for more love in this world.
