Fela Kuti

Watched Fela Kuti & Africa 70 – Pansa Pansa – FULL HD (Berlin 1978) by Alain Guilloux from youtu.be

One of the few pro-shot concerts of legendary musician Fela Kuti with his band Africa 70, playing for the jazz festival in Berlin, 1978. Fela was a social activist and leader who fought for freedom and justice in Nigeria. He died in 1997.

I’d never heard of Fela Kuti but saw he’s been nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. A fellow sax player! Just based on this one song I like his singing better than his playing but that could just be this song.

His outfit in this video is incredible, love it.
