Berlin: Afrobeat injection
- Date published
Carhartt WIP proudly presents in cooperation with J.A.W. Family the Berlin live show of Oluseun Anikulapo Kuti, better know Seun Kuti, youngest son of legendary afrobeat innovator Fela Kuti. Born in 1982, the saxophonist and vocalist learned under the tutelage of his father, before going on to take over as the lead in his former band Egypt 80. So far, they have released several albums together and toured the world. This time, they they’ll be performing their latest LP Black Times, released on UK-based Strut Records back in March. The record features eight driving epic tunes that bring together jazz, funk, soul, folk and Afrobeat. For Kuti’s show in Berlin you can not only expect Seun’s compositions, but also performances of the larger-than-life-tunes of his father. Come and dance the night away.
