Jaribu Afrobeat Arkestra describe their sound as "Neo-Afrobeat", yet much of the material on second album Mediacracy looks back to the golden age of Fela Kuti. Sure, there are a few other influences thrown into the pot - juju, highlife, jaunty Afro-soul ("Afro-Soul Knows"), even Morricone-ish spaghetti western sounds (see "Tricky Liars (Part 2") - but their default position is devilishly reverential. That's definitely necessarily a bad thing, though. For starters, the playing and composition skills of the ten-piece band are brilliant. There's also enough disparate strands to entertain all but the most hard-nosed Afrobeat acolyte.
