ALBUM REVIEW:
SCENE MAGAZINE 25.11.09
‘Peace Love & Unity’ (Vitamin Records)

As one of Brisbane/ Nth NSW’s most active and wildly talented funk
collectives, Afro Dizzi Act have been forging a path through Afrobeat, dub, and heavy funk for more than a decade, bringing a ton of good vibes to the masses over the years. Since hooking up with Senegalese Kora master and vocalist Jali Buba Kuyateh four years ago, they have headed deeper into the heart of Africa, and this is reflected on their latest release, ‘Peace Love & Unity’. A brilliant live band, Afro have captured their vibe perfectly here - anyone who caught them at Island Vibe can attest to their power. This is true Afrobeat, strongly influenced by masters such as Fela Kuti - layers of simple rhythm cascade and mesh together to form a hypnotic and, overall, complex beast of a sound that can’t fail to get feet tapping and heads nodding. Throughout tracks like ‘Toubabau’ and ‘The Pilgrem Returns’, there is a sunny, heady vibe that just screams authentic, good timesummer music. The rhythm section (OJ Newcombe and Mark Henman) is bedrock, keeping the whole band nailed down with finesse and feeling throughout, while Sol Carrol and Zig Zaggs provide the melody and flourish. Marcello jumps up for a suitably infectious wail on ‘Do You Love’, and the overall impression is that this is a band completely hitting their straps in terms of confidence, knowledge and musicality.
There is a bonus disc available with a pile of dope remixes from the album. Afro Dizzi Act are an essential part of the musical landscape up here - this release says they’ll be around for a long time.

"THERE'S always something fresh at Woodford, a place to discover new musicians, artists, street performers, dancers and speakers. Headlining this year's Woodford Folk Festival are the John Butler Trio, Afro Dizzi Act , Dallas Frasca, James Morrison and Lisa Mitchell, but as usual most acts are first-timers." Renae Soppe (The Australian)

"DURING every Woodford Folk Festival, the word goes out about one or two truly outstanding acts in attendance. This year, popular band Afro Dizzi Act has been the one wowing the crowds in their thousands." - Alan Lander (Sunshine Coast Daily)

Island Vibe Gig Review. 4th Nov. 2009
"It was Afro Dizzi Act who took the cake for best vibe - the lads were shining bright that night, revelling in the atmosphere, jamming things out beautifully with Jali Buba out front. This is the perfect setting for their improvised, good-time funk, and a fine way to wrap up my first Island Vibe." Scene Magazine.

" One of the best African/Australian fusion bands I have ever seen
come out of Australia." Ben Walsh (The Bird, Circle of Rhythm).
