Gallery: Okayafrica joined the Finding Fela entourage last weekend at the Sundance premiere of the Alex Gibney-directed documentary.

Okayafrica joined the Finding Fela entourage last weekend at the Sundance premiere of the Alex Gibney-directed (and Okayafrica/Okayplayer produced) monster doc. The buzz has been sensational, with raving articles from Billboard, Rolling Stones, and Indiewire. The Fela! Band performed three nights in a row to packed crowds of yansh-shaking party-goers, joined by Fela's daughter Yeni Kuti, his manager Rikki Stein, and ex-girlfriend Sandra Isadore. Above, take a look at some behind the scenes (and in-front-of the screen) photos from our trip.
