Albino is a San Francisco Bay Area-based 12-piece Afrobeat ensemble that honors the fiery legacy of Afrobeat inventor Fela Kuti by melding tightly-crafted arrangements and jazz-tinged harmony with propulsive, high energy grooves. Formed in 2003, Albino has performed to capacity crowds up and down the West Coast and as far east as Chicago. The band's members hail from such well known acts as Spearhead, CK Ladzekpo and Hamsa Lila, among others. Albino re-acquaints listeners with what it feels like to truly groove, and infuses entire audiences with an ecstatic energy that pours forth from the stage whenever this funk-fueled juggernaut performs.
