The Legacy Of Fela Kuti

Tuesday 27th December

It is very difficult to put into words the significance and stature of an individual like Fela Kuti, and his contribution to music, politics and culture across the twentieth century.

 

A pioneer of afrobeat – a genre of which he was at the forefront – Fela gifted the world with songs such as ‘Beasts of No Nation’, ‘Zombie’ and ‘Water No Get Enemy’.

After the sell-out success of our birthday celebration show in October, we have brought Fela‘s former bandmate Bukky Leo & Black Eygpt alongside a stellar line-up of London musicians, to retell many of the Nigerian multi-instrumentalist’s stories, and in doing so honouring the life and legacy of an icon that has given us so much.
