Horns of Freedom

A 8 track afrobeat album (36m 3s) — released November 15th 2013 on First Word Records

We're delighted to announce the debut album fromThe Fontanelles. Originally formed to be the onstage band for the London run ofFela! The Musical, the band's natural chemistry was such that they instinctively continued performing together when the show ended. They took the energy of the stage show and started working on original material, addingreggae, ethio-jazzandskainfluences to theafrobeatsource.

Their debut album takes in everything that defines The Fontanelles' distinct sound. There'suptempo Afrobeatthumpers (Gaia's Revenge, the seismic Afrocat and recent single Criminality),mid-tempo dubgroovers (Pinprick & Project 31) and the band's unique take onlo-slung funk(The Wave).
