Red Hot + FELA Live! At Lincoln Center
Video from Red Hot FELA! Live at Lincoln Center Out of Doors on July 24, 2013.
Back in July we hosted the live stream for Red Hot + FELA! Live from Lincoln Center, a marathon night that kept the spirit of Fela Kuti alive through a good time union of Afrobeat and indie. The OKA-approved lineup included the likes of Sahr Ngaujah (star of FELA! On Broadway), Fela's master drummer and pioneer of afrobeat percussion Tony Allen, Congolose/Belgian lyricist Baloji, Sudanese afro-indiedarling Sinkane, Angelique Kidjo, Dead Prez's M1, Sierra Leone’s finest frontman Bajah (of Bajah + The Dry Eye Crew), Rubblebucket’s Alex Toth, and super-group Superhuman Happiness — which unites members of Antibalas, tUnE-yArDs, and Iron + Wine. Now, in a month packed with Fela-related news and birthday celebration, the Lincoln Center has released video from the monumental night. Watch the ENTIRE performance of Red Hot + FELA LIVE! below.
