No Go Stop
The mighty 12-piece No Go Stop are much more than a tribute to past glories, they are a living, breathing evocation of the life-force that is Afrobeat. Boasting an impressive repertoire of self-penned, new material, they have recently released their debut record "Agbara Orin”. Driving percussion, brass encrusted rhythms and epic instrumental solos set the pace while echoes of Old Soul from Marie Lister’s Vocals, catch the timeless quality of that ancestral funk sound. No Go Stop are truly on a mission to bring something exciting and new whilst staying true to Fela Kuti's musical mission to present the heart of jazz with the soul of Africa and keep you dancing till dawn.
“The Bristol band have a real feel for what Fela Kuti and Tony Allen created 40 years ago…No Go Stop sound like real contenders for the contemporary Afrobeat crown.”” ~ Songlines 2015
