a storming live set from the founding father of afrobeat, 4 sprawling yet tight jams create an enthralling, vibrant & simply awesome experience.

forming part of fela’s debut us tour with his egypt 80 band, the detroit concert proves that time in prison had not blunted his or egypt 80’s musical power. the numbers performed find fela on confident form, teasing the audience & leading his magnificent band into epic jams that explore an african/american musical dialogue that culminated in his inimitable brand of jazzy, groove heavy afrobeat. with fela directing the band on keyboard & vocals, each song stretches out into a beautifully fluid african jazz epic.
