About

He’s one of the most exciting musicians you’ll see live, and as the youngest son of Afrobeat pioneer and fierce human rights activist Fela Kuti, Seun Kuti is a man whose name carries plenty of weight. Since inheriting the Egypt 80 orchestra after his father’s passing in 1997, Kuti has proven he’s the man to continue this significant musical legacy, while adding a distinct twist all of his own.

Fusing jazz, funk and soul with African rhythms and with Kuti’s occasionally political, sometimes biting and always powerful lyrics, this is music to have you dancing, clapping and stomping your feet.
