On Saturday at the Rock and Roll Hotel, Serge “Massama” Dogo and his band, the D,C,-based group Elikeh, played their own take on Afropop, a style of African pop music played on electric instruments and inspired by Western pop and soul music. They also brought in traditional polyrhythms from Togo, where Dogo was born and raised. With songs that were upbeat and energetic, an Elikeh live show is basically musical Prozac: It’s impossible to feel anything but happy in its presence.

We added some new pics to the Gallery Page.
There is a lot to absorb but the band plays so well as a unit, you can just drift away, dance and take it all in. Everyone should add some west-African music to their listening experiences and we are fortunate to have that right here in DC in Elikeh.
