Dele Sosimi Spring UK Tour

Former musical director of Egypt 80 and current musical director of FELA! in London's National Theater, Dele Sosimi, is about to embark on a tour of the UK. After beginning his musical career at the foot of the master at age 16 as part of Egypt 80, Dele went on to tour with Femi Kuti and Positive Force for ten years. In that time he developed his own sound, which he'll be showcasing on his spring tour. If you're in the UK, check him out on one of these dates:
