                    Zongo Junction is generating a well-deserved buzz in NYC’s burgeoning afrobeat scene. The 13-piece ensemble blends West African rhythms with funk, jazz and soul. True to their inspiration, Nigerian superstar, political activist and afrobeat pioneer Fela Anikulapo Kuti, the outfit excites dance floors wherever they perform. The critics agree. “The only thing Zongo Junction has to do to start a legitimate dance party is show up and plug in…anyone within a square block earshot of this Ford-tough funk factory would be hard pressed not to join in the hoopla,” says the Bay Area’s SF Station. The band recently recorded their debut album “Thieves!” set for independent release on December 30, 2010. As afrobeat music has always done, the album speaks truth-to-power with humor and soul. The album’s five original songs feature long-time Fela Kuti band member, Leon Kaleta Ligan-Majek, on vocals. The core of the band was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and has played together virtually since they were in diapers. Members of the band have performed or recorded with: TV on the Radio, Meta and the Cornerstones, The Walkmen, and many more.
