Fela Kuti

Olugbenga, Sam Duckworth, Shinhai Shoniwa of Noisettes, Afrikan Boy and the 25-piece Goldsmiths College Choir will all perform live in tribute to late afrobeat great Fela Kuti next month, in collaboration with The Dele Sosimi Afrobeat Orchestra.

Timely given the recent-ish release of ‘Red Hot + Fela’, a collection of covers of his songs by tUnE-yArDs, Questlove, Childish Gambino, Angélique Kidjo and the like, the ‘Felabration’ is happening at The 229 Venue in London on 14 Dec.

Tickets to it are available here.
