Lafayette Afro-Rock Band was a funk band formed in the US that moved to France in the early 1970s. Not really fitting into the soul scene of their time, they were subsequently discovered by rappers and their beats deployed by heavyweights such as Jay-Z, Public Enemy, and Wu-Tang Clan. Strut Records is re-releasing an out-of-print collection of their work on February 17th titled Darkest Light: The Best of Lafayette Afro-Rock Band.
