about

We're delighted to announce the debut album fromThe Fontanelles. Originally formed to be the onstage band for the London run of Fela! The Musical, the band's natural chemistry was such that they instinctively continued performing together when the show ended. They took the energy of the stage show and started working on original material, adding reggae, ethio-jazz and ska influences to the afrobeat source.

Their debut album takes in everything that defines The Fontanelles' distinct sound. There's up tempo Afrobeat thumpers (Gaia's Revenge, the seismic Afrocat and recent single Criminality),mid-tempo dubgroovers (Pinprick & Project 31) and the band's unique take on lo-slung funk(The Wave).

"There was a reason they were chosen to play Fela’s music on stage, and their new, original material carries on the tradition and has the energy of the Black President and his sound. Not something any band can pull off, but they do." Fleamarket Funk

"The album is superb." DJ Snowboy

*Radio Support from Jazz FM, BBC 6 Music Craig Charles Funk & Soul and Huey Morgan Show and BBC Radio 2 Jamie Cullum.
