An unprecedented collection by Afrobeat legend Femi Kuti, Live At The Shrine includes both a concert film/DVD documentary and a live concert CD, singularly conveying the beauty and joy of Afrobeat music a combustible cocktail fusing jazz, funk, and traditional African music while also communicating its fascinating roots and politics which began with Femis father Fela Kuti, the creator and godfather of Afrobeat.
Live At The Shrine takes place in the Kuti familys hometown of Lagos at the Africa Shrine, where every Sunday Femi plays to a packed house of revelers. With music as his weapon of choice and the Africa Shrine a temple of protest song, Femi continues his fathers fight, railing against the corrupt Nigerian government and staunchly defending PanAfricanism. Capturing this experience through interviews, street scenes, and the music itself, Live At The Shrine captures the spirit, passion, and hope, of a man and a people who are fighting.

Too bad all this talent was recorded so poorly.
Great music but recorded live in Afica at the Shrine....what did I expect anyway??

This is a terrible DVD! Sound sucks, footage is rough and content is depressing. Wish I could send it back.Published on August 16, 2009 by Charles D. Brossman
