“Musical ‘Fela!’ tells story of musician’s extraordinary life” – The Miami Herald
From a team of producers including Jay-Z and Will and Jada Pinkett Smith comes FELA! Directed by Bill T. Jones, this provocative hybrid of dance, theater and music explores the extravagant world of Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti and has become an international sensation having been performed in three continents.
A triumphant tale of courage, passion and love, FELA! is the true story of Kuti, who created a type of music, Afrobeat, and mixed these pounding eclectic rhythms (a blend of jazz, funk and African rhythm and harmonies) with incendiary lyrics that openly attacked the corrupt and oppressive military dictatorships that rule Nigeria and much of Africa. Featuring many of Fela Kuti's most captivating songs and Bill T. Jones's visionary staging, FELA! reveals Kuti's controversial life as an artist and political activist and celebrates his pioneering music.
