Fela Kuti

Open & Close / Afrodesiac

Knitting Factory


Released: 4th Mar 2013


out of stock

incredible, politically charged, funky cuts from the founding father of afrobeat & his expansive band of singers, dancers & players.

'open & close' was originally released in 1971 &, in the manner of 'he miss road' & 'fela's london scene', is a total groove-fest loaded to the gills with raucous horn blowing & tony allen's ferocious percussion. 'afrodesiac' is one of his most propulsive mixtures of funk & african music, avoiding the homogeneity of much funk & african records of later vintage, done with nonstop high energy.
