Son of Nigerian music legend Fela Kuti, saxophonist and vocalist Seun Kuti has been performing on stage since he was nine years old, beginning his career as a backup singer in his father’s legendary band Egypt 80. Now, with the same charisma, energy and incendiary spirit that made his father a world music superstar, Seun Kuti leads Fela’s original 20-piece group in an explosive dance party, featuring the Kuti family’s signature Afro-beat magic and social consciousness laced with a contemporary mix of urban funk, soulful grooves and hip-hop rhythms. The concert will feature music from the group’s 2008 self-titled CD, as well as some Fela Kuti classics.
