Spectacular and inspiring, FELA! The Concert 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! The Concert 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 FELA! The Musical, the concert is a full-on celebration of Fela's most captivating songs.
Say yes, yes, yes to a live, 10-piece Afrobeat band, performing with nine singers and dancers in the courageous and passionate musical journey that is FELA! The Concert.
