” With songs that were upbeat and energetic …… It’s impossible to feel anything but happy in its presence”

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.

Groove heavy and politically active Afro-rock spawned from the unlikely country of Togo. Singer, guitarist, composer and founder of Elikeh, Massama Dogo, was born in Togo, but immigrated to Washington, D.C. in 2000. His D.C. based ensemble fuses indigenous Togolese elements with a contemporary flavor in a powerful and memorable manner including noteworthy guitar work and vivacious horns.
