Tony Allen’s Second Pattern Of Afrobeat

It’s Tony Allen’s second pattern of Afrobeat as presented to us by the master himself. I love Tony Allen’s drumming and Afrobeat music in general. The style is quite challenging to play and I guess it qualifies as a hybrid of jazz and funk or swing coordination with a funk sound, maybe? Listen to Fela Kuti, Ebo Taylor, Dele Sosimi, Antibalas, Abayomy, The Shaolin Afronauts, Tony Allen, of course and so on and so on.
