High energy grooves characterize the musical stylings of Sila and the Afrofunk Experience. With lyrics in English and Swahili, the band’s sound is a fusion of African rhythm, funk, soukous, Afrobeat and reggae, influenced by artists like James Brown, Prince, Otis Redding, and Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti. Sila and AfroFunk Experience’s debut CD “The Funkiest Man in Africa” was critically acclaimed, with Kenyan native Sila receiving Artist of the Year at the LA Music Awards. Like Afro-beat founder Fela Kuti, AFE is known for its extended rifts that drive audiences into ecstatic dancing. Hailed by many as “the James Brown of Africa,” Sila sings of the African experience: the problems he and many others face every day, in a language understood throughout the world. His lyrics and beats reflect the music, language,  energy, and spirit of growing up in Africa.
