[ICYMI] – Sampling Fela Kuti
19 years after the death of one the giants in African history, it is inspiring to see how many international and local musicians are sampling his music. Fela Kuti founded Afrobeat, the genre of music that remains untouched by Western culture and it is this purism that gives the music such rich culture.
His music oozes funk and energy and has the ability to teach, inspire, entertain and move people to one beat.
The selection this afternoon includes:
Nas feat. Alicia Keys – Warrior Song
Buckshot Lefonque – I know why the caged bird sings
Luisito Quintero – Gbagadam Gbagada
Somi – Lady Revisited
