FELA KUTI BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION: FEATURING BAY AREA'S TOP AFROBEAT DJs AT CAFE DU NORD, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 13TH
It is now 10 years since Afro beat icon and Nigeria's most famous musician, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, passed away.
Fela was fondly known as a master musician, political activist and a hero to millions of people around the world. His powerful and prophetic lyrics mocked various authorities, condemned police brutality and spoke up for the rights of ordinary people. Fela moved the boundaries of Jazz and African music to create the Afro beat Genre, a new music that has been widely acknowledged. He was merely a prophet who was never recognized in his life time. Although, in death, this true genius still lives on as an Icon.
To celebrate Fela's 69th birthday and lasting legacy, we bring you a special event in recognition of his profound contribution to our society. Join us at Cafe Du Nord on Saturday, October 13th for an eclectic night featuring Bay Area's Top Afrobeat Djs - Dj Jeremiah and The Afrobeat Nation, Dj Said, Dj Vanka and Dj PleasureMaker.
