Kaleta & Super Yamba Band are a Brooklyn-based Afro-funk collective fronted by Afrobeat and Juju legend Leon Ligan-Majek, a.k.a. Kaleta. From the West African country of Benin Republic growing up in Lagos, Nigeria, Kaleta has performed and toured the world with Fela Kuti, King Sunny Ade, Majek Fashek, and Lauryn Hill. Blending a  unique combination of Afro-funk and Afro-rock, Kaleta sings in several different languages native to West Africa including Fon, Goun, Yoruba and Ewe, along with French and Pidgin English, “the official language of Afrobeat.”

Kaleta’s musical journey began in the late ’70s, performing in church before being discovered by King Sunny Ade, later joining Fela Kuti’s band, Egypt 80, touring the world. His deep roots in the Afrobeat genre significantly influence the sound of Kaleta & Super Yamba Band.
