FELA!

April 25, 2013 @ 12:00 AM - May 5, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

Throughout the 1970s and ’80s, Fela Kuti used driving beats and inflammatory lyrics to criticize Nigeria’s corrupt government, until he was thrown in prison. (He was eventually freed through international efforts.) Former Destiny’s Child member Michelle Williams headlines this revival, produced by hip-hop royal Jay-Z Carter and Will and Jada Pinkett Smith. More information.
