Product Description

The soundtrack to the film 'Finding Fela' tells the story of Fela Kuti's life, his music, and his social and political importance. This in-depth look at the man who created Afrobeat (the fusion of Jazz, traditional West African rhythms, Funk, Highlife, and psychedelic rock) includes 17 of Fela's classic tracks plus a never-before released live version of "Colonial Mentality" recorded at the New Afrika Shine in Fela's hometown of Lagos and features Femi Kuti on saxophone. With his audacious music and much courage, Fela helped fight corruption and autocracy in freshly democratized Nigeria.

Any compilation of Fela Kuti's work is automatically 5 stars, but to be clear, the live version of Colonial Mentality is a recent performance by his son Femi, not a previously unknown recording by the great man himself. I'm sure this is clear in the film, but I haven't seen it yet...

Liked this CD. African beat a huge influence, with some traces of jazz.
