SEUN KUTI + EGYPT 80 fan-site
NEWS 2014

13/03/2014 -

SEUN KUTI is a committed artist. Nothing surprising since Seun is the son of FELA ANIKULAPO KUTI who invented Afrobeat by mixing African rhythms and melodies with American Jazz and Funk, whereupon he lay texts almost exclusively to denounce social injustice , and political and international corruption... Backed by Pan-Africanism, his speech encourages the emancipation of Africans by the denunciation of corruption at all levels. So here very briefly the stage is set. Seun took over first and foremost with THE BAND!... EGYPT 80 ! The last band of his father. Then the message is modernized (necessarily) but the foresight of FELA shines through the message Seun diffuses with powerfull, roots yet modern and always engaged AFROBEAT tracks . Each concert begins with a FELA cover in tribute to his father. There are many books about FELA that allow you to understand his message and his particularly extraordinary life (a simple visit to wikipedia will provide a minimum of info) ; but first one should listen to his music. The FELA page, shows an extraordinary discography of fifty albums, sonic and political masterpieces. Here is a link to his discography where you can stream or purchase tracks and albums in the format of your choice: http://felakuti.bandcamp.com/

Now SEUN KUTI is releasing his third album, the first single "IMF" is already on the tube - see the video lyrics below. Very committed and very direct. One should know that Seun lives in Lagos, Nigeria's capital, one of the largest African country, the most populous, the largest oil producer, yet terrible inequalities hold a majority of the population in unacceptable living conditions.

Seun and his band tour Europe & Australia from March to June 2014 ; all dates are here : https://www.facebook.com/seunkutiofficial

a SEUN KUTI & EGYPT 80 concert is always a joyful event. Be there or Be square ;)
