Bio

Based in NYC: Out of the Nigerian countryside, where the rhythms are older than recorded time, blowing through the electric metropolis of Lagos and the rabid whirlwind of New York City, ASIKO blazes a revolutionary path through the world of afro music. Multi-ethnic and inter-generational, Asiko reacquaints highlife, soukous, afrobeat and samba with funk and soul, obliterating all previous afro-life conceptions.
ASIKO, founded in 2003 by the multi-talented Artist, Musician, Designer, and Percussionist from Nigeria, Foly Kolade has performed and shared same stage with legends such as Roy Ayers, Mariam Makeba, George Benson. Asiko’s powerful lyrics speak truth to power that be, in the spirit of Fela Kuti. Linking performance to politics and Art to detonation, Asiko knows that the best way to move people’s hearts and minds is to move their feet. Asiko’s addictive melodies and propulsive rhythms work conjointly, flowing from the ancient and almighty battery of African drums to the guitar, Keyboard, bass, and horn sounds of the 21st century. Asiko is best Afropop band 2006, Nigerian entertainment awards and Entertainer of the year, 2006 NACA.
