Founded somewhere in the 2010s by David Marquez, the Phoenix Afrobeat Orchestra, fronted by Camille Sledge, has grown into a diverse collective of musicians and artists representing over thirty Arizona acts from a variety of styles.
From clubs to concert halls, picnics to premiers, PAO is committed to playing social music, using one of the funkiest art forms on the planet.
