Federator N°1 is a 14 piece afrobeat, afro-dance band, and a key instigator in Boston's musical movements. The band is a mix of professional musicians and Berklee College of Music Professors / Graduates. We bring a high-energy party to every occasion. Our goal is to bring together people in movement, be that at a wedding, bar/bat mitzvah, birthday party, or just a good-ol fashioned family friendly dance party.

When you want uptempo afrobeat, reggae, hi-life, afro-dance, soul, west african, funk, and other joyful music, call on Federator N°1.

Federator N°1's name is inspired by a piece about Fela Kuti. One of the guys who worked on Radio Shrine to further Fela's musical message spoke about their role at the Radio as the primary Federator of Afrobeat. In that vein, our role is to be the Federator of the first order of afrobeat and afro-centric dance music in Boston. The name also references Konono N° 1, and the fantastic work they are doing playing music that is at once both deeply traditional and unapologetically modern. Federator N° 1 follows that same line - playing music that is rooted in tradition while making the music speak to today's situation - culturally, politically, and musically.

Depending on budget and occasion, we can bring a smaller group as well.
