A Tribute to Fela Kuti

February 9, 2018 at 7:30pm

Centre for the Performing Arts, 1 Dunlop St. W.

Femi is the leader of New Generation Band. There’s no question of his authentic claim to the crown. He was born during times of social and political change in the 1960’s in Lagos, Nigeria.  As a youth, Abosede was introduced to the great Afrobeat originator and social activist Fela Kuti, and spent much of his time as a teenager at Kuti’s infamous Shrine and Kalakuta compound. Abosede says “just by my observing him, Fela taught me to work tirelessly and passionately on my craft”.
Femi is a Funky politicized Nigerian vocalist and musician. To watch Femi Abosode Play is a great experience, in which one witnesses a true entertaining artist, one of the best in this genre. Femi has performed at major international music festivals,including Afrofest, Afrobeat Festival (African Music Week) Harbour front, Nathan Phillips Square, and has travelled around the world, even as far as Nigeria to be part of the huge Felabration (The biggest music festival in Africa) with artists such as Femi Kuti, Seun Kuti, Dele Sosimi and many more. With hypnotic rhythms from his 10 piece band and a profound social message, Abosede has moved beyond his influences.
