It’s music of steadfastness and endurance, of uncompromising determination. It’s also, of course, dance music, made for long nights in clubs … a musical and cultural hero
As the pioneering forefather of Afrobeat and world music, Fela Kuti’s musical legacy is as influential as the story of his extraordinary life. Fela! The Concert captures the best of the spectacularly successful Broadway musical, as Kuti’s most captivating songs are performed by a ten-piece band and cast of singers and dancers from the original production. A celebration of Kuti’s eclectic rhythms and powerful lyrics charts the path of this iconic artist and activist, to evoke both the spirit of his electrifying beat and that of the legend himself.
