List of Afrobeat Bands and Artists   : Vote for your favorites.

Afrobeat is a music genre which developed in the 1970s out of a combination of West African musical styles, such as Fuji music and highlife with American jazz, with a focus on chanted vocals and percussion.

The genre features chants, call-and-response vocals, and complex, interacting rhythms.

The term was coined by Nigerian multi-instrumentalist and bandleader Fela Kuti who popularised the style both within and outside Nigeria. It was partially borne out of an attempt to distinguish Fela Kuti's music from the "soul music" of American artists such as James Brown.
