A WORLD music fanfare sounds out in Narberth on Friday, when the international ambassador of Afrobeat, Dele Sosimi, brings his Afrobeat Orchestra to the Queens Hall.

With sounds described as “joyous and totally uplifting”, Dele will also welcome special guest Molara, of Zion Train/Powersteppers fame, together with DJ Eugene, for what promises to be a legendary night.

Dele will also be presenting an Afrobeat masterclass workshop during the afternoon.

Dele started his career in the Shrine in Lagos, as pianist with the late great Fela Kuti, the creator of Afrobeat.

Today, his band specialises in a modern interpretation of Kuti’s music, with a blend of funk grooves, Nigerian traditional music and percussive poly rhythmsd underpinned by jazz horns.

The night kicks off at 8pm and tickets are £16/£14/£14 in advance or £18/£16/£16 on the door (full/members/concessions). For tickets, call 01834 869323, call into the box office between 10am and 4pm or buy online.

During Saturday afternoon, 1pm-6pm, Dele will be at a location near Crymych for the Afrobeat masterclass.

This gives a unique opportunity to learn to play this genre of music from one of the greatest pioneering Afrobeat artists in the world.

The afternoon is open to beginners and musicians alike, and those who can play by ear are also welcome.

Places, at £10, are limited to 25. The masterclass runs from 1pm-6pm and will be followed by a home-cooked Nigerian feast for £10.

Pre-booking online is essential.

The masterclass is supported by Pembrokeshire County Council’s Enhancing Pembrokeshire grant.
