Akoya is certainly one of the best Afrobeat Revival Bands around. One of its members, Duke Mseleku is a Thekwini Homeboy and a great sax player following in the footsteps of his late uncle, Bheki Mseleku. What I find great about Duke is that he has never confined himself to any particular style,as a Jazz scholar he mostly played in Reggae bands and now the Afrobeats.

Akoya is also one of the few U.S Afrobeat bands with a direct connection to the Shrine, with their bandleader Kaleta having played in Fela’s band.
