Biography

LAC are powered by a promise to continue what afrobeat father Fela Kuti began. 

From Europe to Africa, Glastonbury to ‘Felabration’*, they deliver party-music born of their truly global DNA. The nine-strong collective from England, Italy, France, Congo, Argentina and New Zealand combine Fela, Parliament Funkadelic and Frank Zappa to create an addictive sound drawing on funk, jazz, rock, and dub to create something new and frankly indescribable.

In 2019, the beat goes on for festival and club crowds, energised by hook-heavy cuts from a back catalogue including 2015’s ‘Food Chain’. Produced by Leon Brichard, with artwork by artist Ben Hito (George Clinton/Parliament/Funkadelic), the album received plaudits from (amongst others) Huey Morgan, Tom Ravenscroft, Craig Charles, Jamie Cullum, The Sunday Times, the London Evening Standard and a 4 star review in Songlines.

The hotly anticipated follow up ‘HUMANS’ is set for release on Vinyl and Digital in the Autumn, following a single release in late Spring.

Now a regular feature at many of the major UK festivals**, as well as festivals and clubs across Europe,  they are guaranteed party-starters - any stage, anywhere. And if this sounds like something your fans want, let LAC know. They want to meet them. 

* Nigeria’s annual festival to celebrate the legacy of Fela Kuti – the pinnacle of LAC’s 2015 tour there being a landmark performance at the New Africa Shrine in Lagos State to over 10,000 people.

** Glastonbury, Bestival, Cheltenham Jazz Festival, Secret Garden Party, Boomtown Fair, Green Man, Standon Calling, Wilderness, Shambala (amongst others).
