The Fontanelles

Official Band Website


Welcome to our official website. Formed in London in 2011, The Fontanelles have been inventively blurring the lines between Afrobeat, African grooves and Dub ever since. Renowned for their infectious live energy and shows, the 10-piece group stay true to their core sound of Fela Kuti-style afrobeat (honed while acting as the onstage band for the National Theatre’s sellout transfer of Fela!), while bringing in sounds from Ethiopia, Minimalist textures, sun-drenched dub and righteous horn-led dancefloor grooves.
