Kaleta. The singer, guitarist and percussionist from the West African country of Benin Republic lived his adolescent life in Lagos, Nigeria where Afrobeat was born. Kaleta performed and toured the world with the gods, Fela Kuti and King Sunny Ade, along with Majek Fashek and recently Lauryn Hill.Since taking the helm of Super Yamba in 2017, Kaleta and his band have erupted onto the stages and video screens of major music festivals, rock clubs, and music publications across the United States. They performed at the historic Apollo Theatre in 2019 for the Africa Now! Festival. They prompted Action Bronson to stop his own show on VICELAND TV just so he could hear more Yamba. They rocked Paste Magazine’s Manhattan studio and its Emerging Music Festival, and the World Music Institute invited them to perform twice at Brooklyn Bowl, once for its Masters of African Music Series and later for its Festival Of Mali. Afropop Worldwide fell in love with Kaleta, saying “his James Brown grunts have got to be some of the best in the business!” In 2018 Kaleta & Super Yamba self-released their debut single “Mr. Diva” on 7” vinyl.
