Yomi Bashiru & Naija Grooves

We welcome back legendary Nigerian drummer/percussionist Yomi Bashiru (The Minister of Rhythms) and his explosive 9-piece group Naija Grooves create infectious grooves from the fusion of Fuji, Juju and Afrobeat rhythms. Expect heavy duty rhythms from one of Africa’s greatest drummers.

Yomi Bashiru’s precise drumming has been used by the likes of King Wasiu Ayinde, Kollington Ayinla, Queen Salawa Abeni and The Yoruba Women’s Choir; we defy you to sit still.
