Baltimore Afrobeat Society
Chris is the bandleader and one of the founding members of the Baltimore Afrobeat society, which plays the music of Nigerian afrobeat star, Fela Kuti. The group has been playing in Baltimore since 2003, and is composed of over 20 musicians from all different walks within the Baltimore music scene. Chris has transcribed, from recordings, over 30 Fela Kuti songs for the band. The group usually plays once a year (its most recent, a two night stint at the H and H warehouse this past December) to sold out shows.
