Fela Kuti’s Birthday

Tuesday 15 October

Fela’s former bandmate Bukky Leo assembles a group of London’s finest afrobeat musicians to honour the life and legacy of a musical icon.

 

A pioneer of the afrobeat genre, Fela gifted the world songs like ‘Beasts of No Nation’, ‘Zombie’ and ‘Water No Get Enemy’.

Bukky himself is undoubtedly one of the most important afrobeat musicians alive today. His ‘Felabration’ show here in Camden, paying homage to the great man’s music, was such a hit that we felt we needed to bring Bukky Leo & Black Egypt back for more of the same.
