The Baoku Moses Image Afro-Beat Band is a unique, dynamic
and energetic band. Founded in 2005 by front-man Baoku
Moses. This Cincinnati based band is comprised of talented
musicians who come from a world-wide influence of music and
cultural backgrounds. Consisting of up to 10 members at a
time, the band is able to calibrate their own unique sound by
allowing all their influences to play out in their own distinctive
style of music known as Afro-Beat.
Baoku, a Yoruba native of Nigeria and a professional African
drummer and performing artist, started his Afro-Beat career in
1997, shortly after the passing of Afro-Beat legend Fela Kuti.
Inspired by his work and believing firmly in the power of music,
Baoku and The Image Afro-Beat Band hopes to build an
appreciation for cultural diversity and respect for life as they
continue to contribute to making the world a more peaceful
and respectful place in which to live.
Afro-Beat is a combination of Western music blended with
African instruments and languages to create a musical
expression of peace, love, unity, truth and justice
