I found myself spending most of the day listening to the music and story of Afrobeat pioneer and Nigerian Fela Kuti.
While reading articles, listening to music, and watching various YouTube clips I came across Fela Soul, a well crafted mix of De La Soul acapellas and Fela Kuti instrumentation.
One of my introductions to Fela’s music was J. Period & K’Naan’s tribute as a part of their Messengers series from 2009.
Both projects are a must listen, check ’em out!
