Here’s a really cool video of ?uestlove discussing the importance and influence of Fela Kuti – on both the personal level as well as Fela’s impact on music and culture.
Over the next several months, Knitting Factory Records will be re-releasing Fela’s entire catalogue. The “Chop ‘N Quench” batch, containing 6 CDs (9 albums total) from 1964-1974, is available digitally and physically now. Buy them from Fela.net to get a deal better than you’ll find anywhere else!
