FELA! Musical

After shows in London, Lagos and many American cities FELA!, the musical about the life of afrobeat legend Fela Kuti, comes back to the Broadway. It was staged there for the first time in 2009 and has since won 3 Tony Awards and entertained ten thousands of people. It was conceived by Bill T. Jones and co-produced by Jay-Z and Will & Jada Pinkett Smith.

It’s great to see that so many people were entertained and inspired by the great musician Fela Kuti.

Check the trailer for the FELA!-Show and then a rare 10 min. extract of the musical, in which the ensemble performs Fela’s famous song “Zombie”.
