Chopteeth – Traitors of Africa live video

I don’t often feature a live video for the DC Music Video of the day, but Chopteeth are too good to ignore. This huge 12 piece ensemble plays infectuous Afrobeat music, and you cannot help but dance at one of their powerful live shows. If you’ve never seen them play, your next chance is Saturday night at the Artisphere in Rosslyn, with an opening set by local latin reggae band Nayas. Here’s a taste of the Chopteeth magic, a rendition of Femi Kuti’s Traitors of Africa performed at the Rock & Roll Hotel last year, featuring Funk Ark leader Will Rast on keys.
