About this product
- DescriptionIn the seventies, as signs of decay began to show in the capitalist experiment of the newly independent African countries, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti tore his way into popular culture with his signature blend of eth-traditional music and jazz, drawing lyrics from the flipside of neo-colonial society and his own experience in London and America in the sixties. Afrobeat was born. A dynamic mode of expression in the social history of post-independent West Africa, Afrobeat comprises the lives, loves and politics of a people born to resist.
