Fela! on Broadway

The Black President Comes Back to Broadway
…and You can get discount tickets with the MFMusic code: FE4NFP9

It’s almost impossible to overstate the impact and importance of Fela Anikulapo Kuti (or just Fela as he’s more commonly known) to the global musical landscape. As far as artists who push music forward in a progressive direction, Fela can hardly be matched. He was a larger than life figure that invented a genre. It was Afrobeat, an ambitious blend of West African music, the Funk of James Brown and the political fervor of Malcolm X. Now the story of Fela, a man who spawned so many beats and breaks and who fought for his beliefs through his music, is being presented on Broadway. Fela! is directed and choreographed by Tony Award winner Bill T. Jones and features the music of the amazing Antibalas (widely considered to be the chief torchbearer for Afrobeat in the US today).
