Feeling Fela

with one comment

I fell in love with the music of Fela a few years ago, when the AIDs benefit series released their Red Hot + Riot cd. 

Then I picked up Chief XCel’s musical mix of Fela tunes called Underground Spiritual Game and became intrigued enough to go see the Black President traveling exhibit that came to the CAC.  Although Fela was gone he seemed to be everywhere: his music, his life, his son Femi (although not one of his 27 wives).

But now he’s back again.  At least off-Broadway style.  Fela the musical is getting good reviews, mixing the singer/artist/activist life story with his soul stirring music.  If people can go see Mama Mia then Fela is a no brainer.
