EMEFE has only one intention: to play music that frees everybody in the audience, everybody listening at home, and everybody in the band. The group was created by drummer Miles Arntzen in 2009 to explore and share the afrobeat music pioneered in the 1970s and '80s by Fela Anikulapo Kuti. In the same way that Fela used afrobeat music to confront corrupt politics, EMEFE uses its music to fight the inner authorities that we put on ourselves, each for our own reasons.



EMEFE draws heavy influences from Sly Stone, James Brown, Earth, Wind & Fire, and more to create a powerful and exciting sound that never fails to get audiences jumping. The band hopes to spread awareness of the healing power of music, dancing, and smiling, which explains its reputation as one of the most exciting and engaging live bands in New York.
