      What do you get when you put together seven world-class musicians with
      resumes that include playing/recording with the Grateful Dead,
      Babatunde Olatunji, Dizzy Gillespie, and Stevie Wonder? You get Sikiru
      Adepoju & Afrika Heartbeat. This amazing 7-piece West African trance
      ensemble consists of Sikiru Adepoju (talking drum), Nengue Hernandez
      (percussion), Peter Fuji (guitars), Danjuma Adamu (drums), Val Serrant
      (vocals & percussion), Bola Abimbola (vocals), and Joel Smith (bass).
      Each member of Afrika Heartbeat is a seasoned artist with reputations
      worthy of individual praise. And together, they are receiving it.

      With the release of their debut CD earlier this year, Ijinle Ilu
      (Original Drumming), they are capturing the hearts of world music DJs &
      jamband aficionados alike with their ability to draw out hypnotic
      "indigenous trance" rhythms which find their origins rooted in the folk
      music of West Africa. But their music doesn't stop there. Their unique
      blend of percussion-based music spans the African diaspora to include
      folkloric music of Latin America and the Caribbean, along with jazz and
      R&B, and makes any show with Sikiru Adepoju & Afrika Heartbeat
      something to see! Recalling some of the artists with whom the members
      of Sikiru Adepoju & Afrika Heartbeat have recorded or shared the stage,
      reads like a "who's who" of the Jamband/Jazz/World music scenes: Mickey
      Hart's Planet Drum, Jerry Garcia, King Sunny Ade, Airto Moreira, Al
      Jarreau, Zakir Hussain, Pharaoh Sanders, Carlos Santana, the Grateful
      Dead, Olatunji's Drums of Passion, Pele Juju, the String Cheese
      Incident, The Radiators, and many more.
