ARTE+7 from 06.17 to 06.24


The anti corruption voice of the 1960’s is played with a wild, free tempo, from the traditional rhythms.

After independence the country is torn apart. Fela Kuti, young musician coming from a wealthy family, seizes the Ghanaian highlife and with Yoruba, influenced jazz and funk, gives birth to a new genre: Afrobeat.

Fela sings in pidgin and sends a political message, which aims at changing the social system in Nigeria, to give more strength to the people. The irresistible rhythms combine past and present.

Special Guests : Tony ALLEN – Nicolas ANOYVEGA – Audrey GBAGUIDI
