Gottwood Mix #022 – Dele Sosimi

Gottwood Festival Mix series, News

We feel privileged to present an hour of inspiring records from Dele Sosimi, the afrobeat legend headlining the lawn stage at Gottwood this year along side his Afrobeat Orchestra.

Dele’s career began when he joined Fela Kuti’s Egypt 80 in 1979 he then moved on to create Positive Force, a band with Femi Kuti with whom he performed from 1986 to 1994. He has since released numerous solo albums, most recently on Wah Wah 45’s, all formed from a complex blend of funk grooves, Nigerian traditional music, African percussion and jazz horns.

We have now migrated over to Soundcloud for the new Gottwood mix series and all mixes are downloadable in high quality direct from our Soundcloud page. All editions of the previous Gottwood Presents mix series are archived on our Mixcloud page.
