Overview

Femi Kuti is the son of Fela Kuti, the Nigerian musician who created Afrobeat -- a fiery blend of funk, jazz, and African rhythms -- and became a celebrated firebrand in the battle to reform the corrupt Nigerian government and bring unity to the people of Africa. Femi Kuti has picked up where his father left off in both sound and in spirit (Fela died in 1997), and in this concert film the young saxophonist and his ensemble Positive Force document one of their celebrated "Sunday Jump" concerts in Lagos, which have become a center for both musical exploration and political activism. Femi Kuti: Live at the Shrine includes the songs "If Them Want to Hear," "Shotan," "Can't Buy Me," "Water No Get Enemy," and many more.

Femi Kuti: Live At the Shrine 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

On the album "Live At The Shrine" Femi definitely moves the afrobeat genre forward.The songs are more bass oriented and are strongly featured on "Dem Bobo" and "If Them Want To Hear" in particular. The band is tight and Femi's saxophone solos albeit loose are strong. The power of Afrobeat is best captured live and Femi has done a great job capturing the vibe of the music. First time Afrobeat listeners can start here with Femi's vibrant sound, then gravitate to Fela who had more complex arrangements on his recordings. Femi's the future!
