Lately I have been watching a few youtube videos from 'A drum teacher reacts to xx drummer'.
I'm kind of disappointed that Tony Allen isn't included. I was familiar with Fela Kuti (and son Femi) but
didn't know. I would say that Mr. Allen was hugely disserviced compared to his contributions. RIP-a big loss for music.

I got to watch Tony from backstage at a big outdoor festival in New York a few years ago. He was hugely revered in the Afro-beat community. RIP Mr Allen.
