felabration marks the birthday of Fela Kuti, the defining creator of the rhythmic force that is Afrobeat, which emerged in Nigeria in the 1970s. As well as a composer and multi-instrumentalist genius, Fela was a human rights activist and defiant political and social maverick who’s influence continues to reverberate throughout Africa and beyond.
His music told stories and we intend to retell them at Shoreditch platform with a 3 hour DJ set from Afriquoi an african music group based in London that create captivating, beautiful, dancefloor- friendly music.
