Fela Kuti

Army Arrangement

Knitting Factory


Released: 22nd Oct 2013


One of the pieces that got Fela in trouble with Nigeria's military government, Army Arrangement is a hard-hitting bit of rhythmic agit-pop.

The lyrics are among his most critical of the Nigerian military and government, focusing on the troubled period when the country returned to civilian rule at the end of the 1970s.
