DELE SOSIMI AFROBEAT ORCHESTRA.

Friday 30 July 2010, by Mabinuori Idowu (aka ID)

The musical career of Dele Sosimi began when he joined Fela Anikulapo-Kutis Egypt 80 band in 1979. As the rhythm keyboard player Dele worked and toured extensively with Fela around the world. During Fela’s incarceration in 1984, Femi Anikulapo-Kuti Fela’s son and Deles childhood/school friend - took over the reins temporarily and led the Egypt 80 band. Thus giving Dele a chance to develop his arranging skills as a musical director. Working closely with Femi, they re-orchestrated and re-arranged most of Fela’s popular tunes. As a member of the band, Dele played keyboards on the following Fela/Egypt 80 hits (among others): Parambulator, Power Show, Original Sufferhead, Customs Check Point, MOP 1 (Movement of the People), Give Me Shit, I Give You Shit, Authority Stealing, Army Arrangement, Government Chicken Boy, ITT (International Thief Thief) and Teacher Don’t Teach Me Nonsense.

In 1986 Femi left Egypt 80 to form Femi Anikulapo-Kuti and the Positive Force, Dele too left and became a founding member of the new group. The band toured the world extensively and played in several of the major jazz festivals including Montreux, the North Sea Jazz Festival and the Montreal Jazz festival. The Positive Force was also invited to perform at the Jazz Club of Nigeria Festival alongside other renown musicians like Dizzy Gillespie, Randy Weston, Toshiko Akiyoshi and Didier Lockwood. Dele closely collaborated with Femi in the production of the albums: No Cause for Alarm, Mind Your Own Business, and Wonder Wonder. Dele left Femi Anikulapo-Kuti and the Positive Force in December 1995 and moved to London where he set about forming a new group. Dele’s first solo album “Turbulent Times” (2002) featured the cream of the resident Afrobeat community on the label Eko Star, he currently leads his London based Afrobeat Orchestra.
