Tony Allen is the autobiography of legendary Nigerian drummer Tony Allen, the rhythmic engine of Fela Kuti's Afrobeat. Conversational, inviting, and packed with telling anecdotes, Allen's memoir is based on hundreds of hours of interviews with the musician and scholar Michael E. Veal. It spans Allen's early years and career playing highlife music in Lagos; his fifteen years with Fela, from 1964 until 1979; his struggles to form his own bands in Nigeria; and his emigration to France. Allen embraced the drum set, rather than African handheld drums, early in his career, when drum kits were relatively rare in Africa. His story conveys a love of his craft along with the specifics of his practice. It also provides invaluable firsthand accounts of the explosive creativity in postcolonial African music, and the personal and artistic dynamics in Fela's Koola Lobitos and Africa 70, two of the greatest bands to ever play African music.

In this book you will find many various notations of records that Allen played using theafrobeat style which was invented by him.Michael Veal, writer of the autobiography of Tony Allen, depicts in his wonderful book: "TonyAllen, the rhythmic engine of Fela Kuti's Afrobeat. Allen embraced the drum set, rather thanAfrican handheld drums, early in his career, when drum kits were rare in Africa." Also legendaryFela Kuti is known for saying " Without of Tony Allen there would be no Afrobeat!" Well,anyone interested in afrobeat drumming you may have realized that it is a shame that it is next toimpossible to find any afrobeat book among the hundreds of great method books.I have been working on analyzing and deciphering afrobeat for more than five years. Aftermuch analyses and study, finally this method book born. I am convinced You will see thatplaying your drums with such kind of mental approach is going to improve your musicianship byplaying with more expression and coordination. Play more like making chords as a guitar orpiano... Not in harmonies but with drums; In the same way that making chords on a guitar orpiano (uses more than one note at a time) you will learn to play your drum kit with perfectfour-limb coordination!
