Okayafrica Presents Femi Kuti & The Positive Force for a Night of Afrobeat at Brooklyn Bowl

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.

To see the magic of a Femi Kuti show, revisit our photo gallery from his two night residency at Brooklyn Bowl last year, in which Femi hypnotized his NYC crowd.
