Celebrate the music of Africa, the culture of Africa and the women of Africa when Chief Floxy Bee, the Queen of Hikosso Music, arguably Nigeria's finest singer, comes with her band to Joe's Pub. African music, rhythm and dance have traditionally bridged the seen and unseen worlds. Experience stunning vocals, pulsing rhythms, neo-traditional Yoruba, highlife, afrobeat and all the sounds of Africa. Culture you can dance to. The Village Voice's Robert Christgau writes her "indigenous-charismatic style, which sounds nothing like Western hymnody and everything like Nigeria".
"West Africa's happiest pop sound" - Elijah Wald, Boston Globe
