ACCELERATA ALBUM NOW AVAILABLE WORLDWIDE
Accelerata by Dan Aceda is among the most truly high spirited and thematically cohesive body of works that have been published out of Africa in 2018. This well anticipated genre jumping album has been described as tottering between classic infectious afrobeat and the undeniable bops of hiphop and RnB. With this project Dan is moving away from the deep ethic sound while leaving enough african sauce to give the feel good vibes of a holiday in the savannah, and introducing the kind of cultured edginess that can only come from an artiste at the top of his game. This is the new sound of East Africa, pop, earthy, jazz and heavy percussion.DAN ACEDA Profile & Lyrics. DAN ACEDA has a total of 2 Song Lyrics and Featurings on Afrika Lyrics. Country : Kenya.
