About this show

Like father, like son...Femi Kuti takes the genius of his father, Afrobeat superstar Fela Anikulapo Kuti - into a new dimension. Femi's version of Afrobeat is the most exciting sound to emerge from Nigeria in years, borrowing the best elements of his father's powerful legacy - deep funk grooves, blazing horns, exuberant percussion and provocative lyrics that propel James Brown's beats back to Africa - and adding the freshness of young Lagos and its taste for the new sounds of the urban dancefloor.
