?uestlove speaks on Fela Kuti

 

We were just provided with some video footage of ?uestlove from The Roots discussing the importance and influence of Fela Kuti. ?uestlove talks about when he first discovered Fela Kuti's music, and walks us through Fela's influence in yesterday and today's hip-hop. Check out the video below.

We have a collection of Nigerian and Ethio tunes plus underground South African soul, jazz and funk from the late 60's and 70's. Take a listen to our mix below and explore genres rich in history (including tracks from Afrobeat pioneer, Fela's drummer - Tony Allen, Ethio jazz creator, Mulatu Astatke and the Nigeria 70 series all from Strut Records.)

Afro Mix featuring Peter King, Tony Allen, Fela Kuti, Steele Beauttah

Over the next several months, Knitting Factory Records will be re-releasing Fela's entire catalogue. Out now is the Chop 'N Quench batch, containing 9 albums from 1964-1974.
