October is the month of Felabration, so we pay tribute to the music, life and stuggle of the great Fela Antikulapo Kuti, godfather of afrobeat.
These bands paying tribute come from around the globe. I picked the tracks from various albums and compilations: “Newen plays Fela”, “Fela Soul” by Amerigo Gazaway’s Soul Mates Project, “La Música es el Arma del Futuro: a Tribute to Fela from Spanish Bands” by DJ Floro, “Leeroy Presents Fela is The Future”, “Red Hot + Riot” and “Red Hot + Fela” by the Red Hot Organization.
