Come and experience this exclusive and entertaining film review Fela!,the highly rated Bill T. Jones directed and choreographed musical. This musical was based on the life of groundbreaking African composer, performer and activist Fela Anikulapo Kuti, and utilized Kuti's own music performed live by Antibalas and other members of the New York Afro beat community. Using his pioneering music (a blend of jazz, funk and African rhythm and harmonies), Fela! explored Kuti's controversial life as an artist, political activist and revolutionary musician.
