KING SUNNY ADE with Black Market Brass at Cedar Cultural Center

Since the evolution of juju music in Nigeria in the 1930s, no artist has made a more lasting impact in the genre than King Sunny Adé. While his last two scheduled shows at The Cedar were canceled due to visa troubles, King Sunny Adé has his visa in tow and is ready to show audiences that he was worth the wait. This two-time Grammy Award nominee and pioneer of modern world music has succeeded in taking this Nigerian social music to international heights. Adé formed his first band in 1967, had his first hit single a year later, and has been in the limelight in Nigeria ever since. In the years that followed, he continued to forge his own identity in the music, with focusing on rhythmic integration and more defined lead singing. Singing in his native Yoruba language, Adé went on to define the terms “Afropop” and “World beat” and opened the door to the West for other African musicians.
