“There should be dancing in the streets.”

First, you’ll feel it in your feet. Then you’ll feel it in your soul . That’s the undeniable power of FELA!
Legendary Nigerian Fela Kuti was a musical dynamo and a political powder keg who used his supercharged and sexy Afrobeat sound and charismatic spirit to ignite and inspire a generation to dare challenge a government of oppression.
"More than a musical. An ecstatic phenomenon!"
- Time Out, New York
