King Sunny Ade is the undisputed king of juju, the high-energy, highly danceable hybrid of Western pop and traditional African music with roots in the guitar tradition of Nigeria. Boasting a diverse roster of collaborators including Youssou N’Dour and Stevie Wonder, Ade has also been an influence on Talking Heads and David Bowie. He comes to MetroTech as part of his first North American tour in eight years.
