“Their expansive, larger-than-life performances usually turn into one gigantic dance party. If you haven’t seen them in action yet, The Hamilton is where you should be . . . - dcmusicdownload

“I love this band, too bad I have to work. They make you move that body! . . . Go even by yourself. You’ll have a great time” - fan on Facebook

“Chopteeth performs a mix of Yoruba rhythms, Central African big jazz, and Fela Kuti-inspired musical ingenuity. In one word, this album can be described as ‘danceable:’ infectious jazz grooves and a high-degree of funkability. Chopteeth is a gritty, dance-infused, Afro-funk ensemble that is sure to get everyone's feet moving for hours...and hours...and hours!”

—Inside World Music

"Afrofunk with lunatic energy…That West African beat with the big horns and strident messages thrives in Chopteeth.”

—National Public Radio (1/11/09)

"Evokes the sweaty dance clubs of Fela Kuti’s Nigerian Afrobeat. A powerhouse mélange of high-energy classical afrobeat, soul funk, ska, rumba and salsa.”

—Montreal Gazette
