Download Everybody Get Agenda album by BANTU – Nigerian Afrobeat Band Bantu Releases new album titled “Everybody Get Agenda”
BANTU is one of those BANDS. But unlike the great bands of old, and even some of the greatest artists of this generation, BANTU is distinguished by the fact that while created and fronted by vocalist Ade Bantu, it is unmistakably a collective, collaborative effort.
When you have a band this strong, this tight where everyone gets to shine, magic happens. And once again, perhaps even more than their last superlative release, Agberos International, this new album is pushing the boundaries of funkiness and political prowess for contemporary music, in Africa or globally.
Formed as an acronym of Brotherhood Alliance Navigating Towards Unity (BANTU) by brothers Ade Bantu and Abiodun in Germany in 1996 the group has created a unique and immediately recognizable fusion of Afrobeat Hiphop, Afrofunk & Yoruba music.
Two years after the success of Agberos International, we can now welcome the newest effort from the BANTU Crew, Everybody Get Agenda. Recorded at Rigmaroll & Blackstar Studio in Lagos, produced by Grammy Award winning producer & engineer Aman Junaid (George Clinton, TLC), mixed by Manu Schlindwein in Cologne, German (Patrice, Mariama, Angelique Kidjo), and mastered by Tony Dawsey (Jay Z, GangStarr, Nine Inch Nails, Whitney Huston), Everybody Get Agenda which also features Seun Kuti is the most extensive and international recording effort yet undertaken by the band.
The long player showcases the 13-piece ensemble at it’s best as they once again chart new musical territories and firmly plant their flag. With a string of singles, remixes and videos already released and more in the pipeline, BANTU looks set to have an engaging and exciting 2020.
