Today Femi Kuti is the heart and soul of modern Afrobeat. After his father, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, created the style – a blend of traditional Nigerian drum patterns, the smooth groove of highlife and American soul, funk and R&B – and took it to the world, inspiring people with insistent dance beats and lyrics bristling with political statements. Afrobeat moved several generations of musicians, in Nigeria and around the world, to follow Fela’s dictum and use music as a weapon to fight for justice and freedom. The new album One People, One World (Knitting Factory Records/ 2018) sees Femi returning to the music’s African roots.
