    Can't get the video to play smoothly, which is a real shame...
    Thanks for sharing, though... I wonder what he would think of it.

    EDIT : what Fela Kuti would think of it, not Kevin.

    Love that Fela's stuff is still around even in Broadway form. His kids Femi and Seun are still keeping the music alive too. I caught Femi's show at a jazz festival and he totally stole the show from cats like Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter, it's absolutely awesome stuff.

    Optikos, being in candada, said it was blocked for him. So I found this (cheaper quality)...

    fela is such a bad ass, but i was watching some opening-night videos of the broadway show and jay z said he feels like the same emotion he does as with bob marley. wtf, fela kuti is the dick's shaft; he's done so much for music and human rights. his whole family has. bob marley was just a pot smoking womanizer who was all talk. i hope this show is really successful and revives fela kuti
