Chopteeth is a 12-piece Afrofunk orchestra exploring the common groove between the funkiest, most hip-shakin’ West African and American popular music on the planet. The core of the Chopteeth sound is Afrobeat: a big-band funk invented by Fela Kuti in 1970’s Nigeria. Afrobeat is a spicy stew of modern jazz, Yoruba tribal music and burning, James Brown-inspired rhythms. Since 2007, the members of the Washington Area Music Association have selected Chopteeth for a total of eight Wammie Awards, including Artist of the Year, Debut CD of the Year, World Music CD (twice) and World Music Group (four times).

Joining Chopteeth is local DC band Nayas, whose mixed rhythms of cumbia, reggae, rock, and ska know no limits and never fail to bring down the house.
