It is very difficult to put into words the significance and stature of an individual like Fela Kuti and his contribution to both the World music and music in general. It is often much easier to showcase his talent via the medium he told his story to the world. With that being said, we’re very lucky to have Bukky Leo and Black Egypt retell many of the Nigerian multi-instrumentalist’s hits at the Jazz Café.
A pioneer of Afrobeat – a genre of which he was at the forefront – he gifted the world with songs such as Beasts of No Nation and Water Get No Enemy, a “celebration” is perhaps fitting of a man who has given so much.
Once again, we welcome Bukky Leo and Black Egypt who will host the night and retell many of the Nigerian multi-instrumentalist’s hits at the Jazz Café.
