Prince of afrobeat music

When the mythical Nigerian musician Fela Kuti passed away, it was his youngest son Seun Kuti who inherited his legendary fourteen piece backing big band Egypt 80. Ever since, he has become one of the most important artists in the afrobeat genre, in which African rhythms and blower sections smoothly blend with American jazz and funk. Live, the merry Nigerians play an energetic mix of father Fela’s classics and songs from the brand new album Black Times.
