ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"A fearsome live act, it’s hard not to get swept up in Chopteeth's urgent beat.”
—Washington City Paper

"Chopteeth’s live shows are as sweaty yet tasty as a Texas barbecue in August."
—Fort Worth Star-Telegram

“A storming powerhouse of big-band African funk, Chopteeth is smart, tight and relentlessly driving. Their live shows have been known to make even the most motionless of concert-watchers flail their limbs and do something that resembles dancing. Only the most determined stoics will be able to resist the grooves conjured up by Chopteeth.”
—The Washington Post

"An epic show. Percolating percussion, bursts of brass, and lilting guitars. Musically adventurous and politically conscious from start to finish. ”
—Baltimore Magazine

"It’s as if Tower of Power resurrected as Afrofunk.”
—Albuquerque Journal

“Wonderfully fresh…Chopteeth can lock into a groove and hold it tight, but still give the feeling of freedom. This is music that makes you want to move.”
—Allmusic.com

"Audiences went crazy over their music, a barrage of sound and movement that compels everyone to dance. The energized musicians feed off each other and the audience gyrating on the dance floor."
—The Washington Examiner
