The eleven-piece afrobeat machine Music Is The Weapon is due to release their second album. Moving Foundations and Outer Space journeys through galaxies made up of sound, occasionally trespassing obscure sealed off areas therein where hidden bea(s)ts are to be discovered by the brave listener.
The new set of songs is a melting pot of ecstatic percussion, wild horn adventures and psychadelic organ lines. Music Is The Weapon is constantly challenging concepts and whatever you expect of this new release expect something else.
Moving Foundations and Outer Space challenges you to let go, shake that body of yours and awaken the spirit of rhythm within, and above all, love afrobeat.

Music Is The Weapon Sweden

Afrobeat: It’s the best answer to a small-town Swedish winter. Or so says Music is the Weapon, a Nordic response to the brash message and sound of Nigerian afrobeat. A eleven-member strong team of top instrumentalists, the group’s core first formed in a remote town far north of Stockholm, and turned from a good-time one-off into Sweden’s best (and perhaps only) Fela-inspired outfit. ... more
