Seun Kuti & Egypt 80 have finished rehearsals for their new album which should be recorded soon! We look forward to that ; but those who have not already heard their debut album ("Many Things" 2008) can purchase it easily at any good music store or listen to a sample on Deezer or Myspace or on our Music page.
And meanwhile I invite you to watch some new recently posted videos on sharing networks : ITW of Seun on Broadway and a Seun Kuti + Amayo jam in NY (December 2009) ; a live show in Bamako (Feb 2009) and more to see in the Videos page.
Lucky residents of Lagos can regularly see Seun Kuti & Egypt 80 in concert on Saturday at the New Afrika Shrine and at Terrakulture.
Some links to articles, podcast or other download for Seun and his band and Afrobeat in general.
A long interview with Seun in NY in December 2009 : Afropop
Marco Werman's PRI's The World, about Fela! on broadway podcast : http://www.theworld.org
Marco Werman's special Global Hit podcast on Fela Kuti (18 minutes): http://media.theworld.org
An excellent video documentary about Afrobeat by Marco Werman, recently aired on PBS and available HERE.
Several new topics should appear on our site, including a "Discography" section listing the main Afrobeat music productions. And a "Media Library" section , a sort of inventory of books, documentaries and videos available.
Also I must mention the recent publications that have caught my attention : the new yet unreleased live DVD of Fela at the Jazz Festival in Berlin in 78 (Nov 09); the 2 new albums by Tony Allen : Secret Agent (June 09) and Inspiration Information 4 with Jimi Tenor (oct 09); the new album Fanga "Sira BA" (Nov 09) and a bit outside of the Afrobeat style - the album that I class on top of the list in 2009 : "Bird Head Son" by Anthony Joseph & the Spasm Band (Jan 09) and they have alsdo posted a full lengh video ! ; Bibi Tanga & the Selenites are a recent discovery and I look forward to receiving their 2nd album which was released on 02 February.
There were many other "releases" in 2009 which are worth being mentioned here and we will try to do that in the "Discography" section. (soon come).
The Waxpoetics magazine started the year with a special edition on comptemporary african music: here
Souljazz Orchestra new album Rising Sun should be released on February 16, 2010!
