Togolese trumpet player & band leader Daniel Dzidzonu wants to bring the authenticity back to African music. Instead of copying American pop culture, he wants his African peers to dive into the rich African heritage to create new sounds. Fela Kuti, Miriam Makeba, Hugh Masekela, Salif Keita, Mory Kanté, in those days, Dzidzonu says, African music was fresh. Modern but African. That’s where he wants to go back to, having Fela and Tony Allen as his major musical inspirations and modern afrobeat as his weapon to “Make Africa great again”!

"Make Africa great again"

Daniel Dzidzonu wants to maintain the afrobeat legacy alive, in a way that Americans are doing with funk, soul and jazz. The young generation American musicians get inspiration from their elders, which is not happening in Africa today. Young Africans don’t know about the great African music of the years after the independence, nor about great cultural and musical traditions that have existed for centuries, before the arrival of the white man.
