Jolting and joyous

- New York Daily News

In a nutshell:
Groove with gravity / Fire-brand rhythms / Meet a musical master

Spectacular and inspiring, FELA! celebrates the songs of Fela Kuti, the founding father of Afrobeat - a blend of jazz, funk and African rhythm and harmonies. Fela was a musical rebel with a political cause, famous for mixing his sensual, eclectic sounds with simple and powerful lyrics that openly assailed Nigeria's oppressive dictatorships.


FELA! showcases Kuti's pioneering music. Along with a backdrop of projected documentary excerpts, the concert reveals a man who was both an incredible artist and a strident human rights activist. Featuring members of the original cast from the highly acclaimed Broadway production, the concert is a full-on celebration of Kuti's most captivating songs.


Say "Yes, please!" to a live, 10-piece Afrobeat band, performing with nine singers and dancers in the courageous and passionate musical journey that is FELA!
