2012-10-12 Afrobeat Worldwide

Fela Kuti Lives!In honor of the upcoming birthday of Fela Kuti, the father of Afrobeat, we heard Afrobeat bands from around the globe this week, from Japan to the Netherlands to the UK to the USA. Just a small taste of the widespread appeal of the sound and attitude of Afrobeat music. In hour 2, new releases and other good stuff, including a couple fun cuts from Ozomatli’s new kids’ album.
