Femi Kuti & The Positive Force w/ Jupiter & Okwess at Higher Ground

http://www.femiakuti.com/

Femi Kuti is the heart and soul of modern Afrobeat. Femi’s 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.

One People One World will be released by Knitting Factory Records on February 23, 2018. Femi recorded most of the album in chaotic Lagos, with musicians from The Positive Force, and his son, Omorinmade Anikulapo – Kuti. “On this album, I kept to my roots and let the music flow through me, without diluting it. I didn’t think funk, or Afrobeat, or anything else. If you hear something in the melodies, it may be there, but as a composer, I surrendered to the higher forces that give me this gift to play music and let it flow out of me.”
