Product Description

Product Description


Product Description

Triple disc (two CDs + DVD) set. Its almost impossible to overstate the impact and importance of Fela Kuti : producer, arranger, musician, political radical, outlaw. He was all that, as well as showman par excellence and inventor of Afro-beat. Felas death with complications from AIDS deeply affected musicians and fans internationally , as a musical and sociopolitical voice on a par with Bob Marley was silenced, with one million people attending his funeral. To commemorate the 10th Anniversary of his death, this box set release includes his double Best Of and the definitive iconic DVD Music Is The Weapon. Shot in Lagos in 1982, this documentary carries us from the Kalkuta Republic to the mythical Shrine nightclub. The film includes previously unpublished versions of ITT, Army Arrangement, Power Show and Authority Stealing (live at the Shrine). Wrasse.

Format:Audio CD
Double audio CD and DVD with great documentary on Felas life and music. I can only recommend this album highly to anybody. Whether you're into jazz, rock, pop, classical, world music, afro-grooves, electronic, ethno music etc, there is something for everybody to be enjoyed and learned from Fela if you keep an open mind and spend a couple of hours getting into the Man and his music.
As a musician and as a human being, I pay my respect to one of the greats for inspiration and teaching humility
