Femi Kuti will be hosting a summer night of afrobeat at Brooklyn Bowl on July 27 with Subatomic Sound System and dj.henri.

The legendary Femi Kuti will be hosting a midsummer's night of afrobeat at Brooklyn Bowl on July 27, alongside his group The Positive Force.


Femi, whose music continues the legacy of his father Fela Kuti’s highly-energetic and politically outspoken afrobeat, will be joined on the night by NYC electronic dub-reggae outfit Subatomic Sound System and dj.henri of Radio Africa Online.
