Femi’s father, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, created the style - a blend of traditional Nigerian drum patterns, the smooth groove of highlife and American soul, funk and R&B – and took it to the world, inspiring people with insistent dance beats and lyrics bristling with political statements.
Femi Kuti carries forth the legacy of his father Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, with a blend of traditional Nigerian drum patterns, the smooth groove of high life and American soul, funk and R&B combined with lyrics bristling with political statements. Femi has locked himself in the studio to record a new original album with his son Made Kuti, and a first EP and video will see the light of day in the Spring of 2020.
