Buffalo Afrobeat Orchestra is a diverse 16 piece ensemble comprised of members from many other area bands including One World Tribe, Outer Circle Orchestra, The Rockaz, 12/8 Path Band, Folkfaces and many more.
A movement of the people, BAO is revitalizing Afrobeat music in WNY and beyond. Afrobeat, with it’s heavy rhythm, trance like groove, powerful melodies, and cutting lyrics …. is so moving that even a statue would be dancing by the end of a concert!
And as it was a vehicle for the movement and voices of many West African people for decades, so shall it be in Western New York!
