Dear African cultures lovers,
Please join us for another night of great African music.

Orlando Julius is one of the heroes of Nigerian music. A saxophonist, singer and songwriter, he began fusing African influences with American R&B and soul in the 60s, and was a major influence on Fela Kuti and Afrobeat.
Since Protected content has been touring with the London band The Heliocentrics, whose previous African excursions have included work with Mulatu Astatke, an Ethiopian musician and arranger considered as the father of Ethio-jazz.
Orlando Julius, despite being 76 years old, is still in rousing form: in Protected content recorded with the Heliocentrics, "Jaiyede Afro", an album in which he shows that he is still Afro-rocking with as much intensity and verve as ever.
