Asiko Afrobeat Ensemble (Toronto)

From the countryside of Ogidi, Nigeria via New York City, Foly Kolade's Asiko Afrobeat Ensemble brings fresh contemporary Afrobeat to the Toronto live dance music scene. Celebrating their debut Canadian album, "Winners Never Quit," Asiko is an all-original contemporary Afrobeat band led by a master of the craft. Their live show is a high-energy spectacle that incorporates Nigerian dance, percussion and costume: “We specialize in making audiences get up and dance!” Asiko has opened for Seun Kuti and have shared the bill with Antibalas, Zap Mama, Buffy St Marie, Aline Morales, Cheick Diabate, Madagascar Slim and Awa Sangho. Specializing in uplifting large audiences, they have headlined Afrofest and Uma Nota Festival of Tropical Expression in Toronto and have performed at Koerner Hall and Harbourfront's WestJet Stage.
