Newen Afrobeat

Newen Afrobeat is an experience of musical awareness, where music is the weapon for change. Following Fela Kuti’s legacy, they connect Africa and Latin America with a high energetic show of music and dancing. If as Miles Davis said “afrobeat is music of the future”, then, the future is Newen.
 
Newen Afrobeat is one of the most outstanding and attractive bands in Latin America and the only one to cultivate the afrobeat genre in Chile. Its quality and staging, has been recognized by a number of outstanding artists, which has opened the doors for successful tours of the United States, Europe, Africa and Latin America. Today, it is one of the national projects of greater international projection. With three albums under his arm, they are promoting their new album Curiche that contains songs such as Cántaros in a clear ode to the ancestral feminine energy and Chaltumay, a hymn of gratitude to the Mapuche people. It is a show of music, dance and social conscience.
