The Akano Rhythm Brothers are three multi-instrumentalists, singer/songwriters and musical siblings based in Dublin, Ireland. Originally from Lagos, Nigeria, they found a new home in Ireland where they now share their musical heritage with audiences from all over the world. Their sound mixes elements of 70s/80s Nigerian folk, highlife, afrobeat with funk, soul and jazz. They aspire to follow in the footsteps of African musical legends Fela Kuti, Hugh Masekela, King Sunny Ade, Chief Ebenezer Obey to mention a few.
Returning to live music post-lockdown, the brothers debuted their latest project at this year’s Signs of Life Festival, where they also hosted Yankari Afrobeat Collective and Selu and the Living Things. Currently they are working on their debut album, recording at Studio Ekala in County Clare and Crossroads Recording Studios in Kilkenny. The album will be released later this year.
