We enjoyed getting to know Brooklyn's great Afrobeat band Super Yamba when they visited Studio B in 2017. Now they've teamed up with Benin's Leon Ligan-Majek, a.k.a. Kaleta, who fronts this otherwise all-instrumental ensemble. Kaleta spent his teen years in Nigeria, playing with both Fela Kuti AND King Sunny Ade, the two greatest legends of Nigerian Afrobeat music. It's a mighty big sound, filling up Studio B and then The Mothlight in West Asheville Wednesday night.
