Biography

THE PHENOMENON

Over a decade after his death, vindication has come to Fela Kuti, Africa’s musical genius. AfroBeat, his gift to the world, is now an international staple on his own uncompromising terms, social content intact.

Throughout his life, Fela contended that AfroBeat was a modern form of danceable, African classical music with an urgent message for the planet’s ... Read more in Amazon's Fela Kuti Store

Editorial Reviews

A 1971 recording at Abbey Road (a.k.a. the hallowed home of the Beatles) Fela cut these five awesome tracks in which his Afrobeat sound is complex and jazzy. Cream drummer Ginger Baker, shows up on this recording (albeit uncredited) on the track "Egbe Mio,". Kuti s eclectic spirit proves to be a major asset on Shakara, which consists of two 13-minute performances by Kuti's Africa 70 band: "Lady" and "Shakara (Oloie)."

5.0 out of 5 stars Global Beat That Can't Be Beat! July 7, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Absolutely killer Afro-funk by messenger, messiah, and martyr Fela Kuti. Considerd to be Africa's equivalent of James Brown, his work is ground zero for all that we now consider as World Music and its ilk. He had no equal during the 60's and 70's and spent most of the 80's incarcerated for his political beliefs. These two LP'S are among his finest, and should be required listening for anyone who thinks they know what funk is. Non-stop percolating rhythms, repetitive funk guitars, incessant percussion and punctuating horns keep an open fire going throughout the festivities as Fela takes turns vocalizing and playing horn and organ solos. If this s*#t doesn't get your ass moving, check your pulse, you're probably dead.
