Armo profile

This 6 piece band is an outgrowth of Afrobeat pioneers Antibalas featuring lead singer/keyboardist Amayo, trumpeter Jordan McLean, and percussionist/vocalist Marcus Farrar, drummer Kevin Raczka, bassist Justin Kimmel and guitarist Nikhil P. Yerawadekar.

Collectively the members of this ensemble have performed thousands of concerts around the world on their own and as members of Antibalas, and have worked with such luminaries as David Byrne, Angelique Kidjo, Public Enemy, TV on The Radio, and Ornette Coleman.


Armo’s intimate and energetic sound focuses on classical and contemporary Afrobeat music, featuring the music of Fela Anikulapo Kuti, and new compositional directions set upon by its founders.

The debut EP is available starting February 13th.
