Tony Allen and an "African Prom"

Sometimes I love this city so much. On nights like this, when the Luminato Festival puts on a wonderful concert of gorgeous African music at Queen's Park, featuring Tony Allen. The Nigerian musician is credited with creating the "AfroBeat" sound and is considered one of the most influential drummers and musicians of our time.
Here are some pics of his band in action.
All photographs taken by the talented Chris Kayaniotes.

Here's Tony Allen in the middle, with his incredible band surrounding him.
