I was invited once again by my boy Bawo (@JustBawo on IG) to a live celebration for the late Fela Anikulapo Kuti. I just want to know when’s the next one because this was a magical & uplifting experience to say the least!  I was left in awe from the live performances, the jazz musicians and the dancer. The dancer was so fierce and exuded a confidence like no other! For those who don’t know who Fela Kuti is, this is the best time to get hip to his spiritual, controversial and powerful music straight from the 70’s and 80’s. His authentic musical style is unmatched and will forever be a classic! Fela died in 97′ and his music is still being praised and is still a controversial piece that you can groove to till today. I really appreciated Felabration. It took me back to Saturday mornings when my father would wake me up to Fela blasting throughout the house through his olden vinyl player. Take a look below for some pictures I took of the performances during the Felabration. Can’t wait for the next one!
