Fela Kuti

Felabration 2017

Fela Kuti 20th Memorial Anniversary

Nigerian musician, composer and human rights activist Fela Kuti, a crucial artist of Afrobeat, passed away 20 years ago, in 1997. It was during a ten-month tour in the United States that Fela came to know the organizations that fought for Black rights, as well as their principles. Upon returning home, his music and way of life became radicalized.

His lyrics would speak out against social injustice, he and his bands would give five concerts a week, and the events would include political speeches and religious ceremonies. He lived in a commune with his closest followers and his family, which they symbolically declared to be an independent republic, and which gave work to hundreds of people. Fela was routinely imprisoned and beaten after the appearance of an anti-governmental song; he was arrested over two hundred times.

Felabration is a music festival founded in 1998. The original event in Lagos is a one-week happening, with countless guest performers, concerts and other events. For many years, independent, one-day Felabration concerts have been held in a growing number of cities around the world (London, New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo).
