      Then you’ll feel it in your soul .
      That’s the undeniable power of FELA!

      Legendary Nigerian Fela Kuti was a musical dynamo and a political powder keg who used his supercharged and sexy Afrobeat sound and charismatic spirit to ignite and inspire a generation to dare challenge a government of oppression."More than a musical. An ecstatic phenomenon!"
