If you never seen Femi Kuti, son of afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti perform live, you haven’t lived. Just the show that his background singers/dancers put on is alone worth the price of admission. But then when Femi chimes in with his furious sax playing and chants, you know you are in for a treat…The Root has a new article on Femi’s new tour, along with the storied history of his family. Check it out here.
