Nwa Na Agbe (which translates from Igbo to “black and mad”) is a collective of Milwaukee artists started by Jay Anderson and Cecilio Negrón Jr. The musicians have taken traditional African music and transformed it into their own captivating genre-bending blend. Their new album presents a compilation of their resounding live recordings.
This infectious sound is heavily inspired by the Nigerian musician and human rights activist Fela Kuti. Therefore, as the music of Nwa Na Agbe intoxicates the soul causing irresistible dancing, it also calls on for social awareness and political change.
