Seun Kuti, youngest son of late and great Fela Kuti, will be taking to our stage for a once in a lifetime rare and intimate show. Egypt 80, the same band that was fronted by his legendary father, will be joining him on stage to get the audience dancing the night away.
After the release of his now renowned album Africa With Fury: Rise, Seun Kuti, who started performing by his father’s side at only 9 years old, proved that he not only inherited his father’s talent, but also his passion and anti-establishment fury. Kuti’s most recent album, A Long Way to the Beginning, has also gained critical acclaim. The songs are faster, harder, beautifully intricate and, as always, defiantly political.
Egypt 80, astoundingly good musicians in their own right, will work with Kuti to deliver explosive power filled with wild, funky energy and deliciously compelling rhythms. Together, they will bring Fela Kuti’s afrobeat legacy to life, all while spinning his classic Afrobeat sound into the modern era.
Support comes from Agbeko with more special guests yet to be announced.
