SEUN KUTI & EGYPT 80 (NG)
This event is sold out
Seun Kuti is the youngest son of legendary Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti. At the age of nine, Seun expressed the wish to sing to his father. A short while later Seun started performing with his father and the band, until his fathers untimely death in 1997. Seun, then only 14 years old, assumed the role as lead singer of Egypt 80. Ever since, Seun has followed the political and social ethos of his father. Along the way, he began to add his own twist to the music, digging deep into various African
traditions to reflect the continents struggles and cultures. About three quarters of the current Egypt
80 line-up consists of musicians that not only played with Fela Kuti, but often were arrested and
harassed alongside the founder of the Afrobeat movement. Seun Kuti has toured the world and isn't finished by far.
