Fela Kuti

Fela Kuti became a global sensation not just because of his controversial music and run-ins with political leaders and police, but also because of his great stage performances that could keep a crowd excited for hours. The father of Afrobeat is remembered for his shirtless stage performances and iconic dance moves that to date remain a compelling technique no one has been able to master. On stage, Fela takes his time to involve the crowd with his stellar control of the saxophone, piano or trumpet while his dancers dance to the rhythm of the distinct Afrobeat. His performances which are noted for going on hours upon hours can become a huge party celebrating African culture.
