Description:

Arrest the Music! is a lively musical study of Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, one of AfricaÂs most recognizable, popular, and controversial musicians. The flamboyant originator of the Â"AfrobeatÂ" sound and self-proclaimed voice of the voiceless, Fela used music, sharp-tongued lyrics, and derisive humor to challenge the shortcomings of Nigerian and postcolonial African states. Looking at the social context, instrumentation, lyrics, visual art, people, and organizations through which Fela produced his music, Tejumola Olaniyan offers a wider, more suggestive perspective on Fela and his impact on listeners in all parts of the world. Placing Fela front and centre, Olaniyan underscores important social issues such as authenticity, racial and cultural identity, the relationship of popular culture to radical politics, and the meaning of postcolonialism, nationalism, and globalism in contemporary Africa. Readers interested in music, culture, society, and politics, whether or not they know Fela and his music, will find this work invaluable for understanding the career of an African superstar and the politics of popular culture in contemporary Africa.A bold and energetic close-up on one of AfricaÂs most popular and controversial stars1. Introduction: "Living in the Interregnum": Fela Anikulapo-Kuti and the Postcolonial Incredible 2. The "Apolitical" Avant-Pop Hustler 3. The Afrobeat Moralist 4. Dissident Tunes: The Political Afrobeat 5. Fela, Lagos, and the Postcolonial State 6. On the Shop Floor: The Social Production of Afrobeat 7. Pedagogue, Pedagogy, and the Pedagogic Form 8. The Cosmopolitan Nativist: Fela and the Antinomies of Postcolonial Modernity 9. The Political, The Libidinal 10. Conclusion: Afrobeat After FelaÂ"Olaniyan has given us a profound and beautifully integrated book which culminates in a persuasive interpretation of the relationship between FelaÂs apparently incompatible presentational selves. . . . The bookÂs accessible and evocative prose is in itself a kind of homage to FelaÂs continual ability to seduce and astonish. . . . This is such an attractive book you feel like . . . ransacking your collection for Fela tapes.Â" ÂKarin Barber Â" . . . an indispensable companion to FelaÂs music and a rich source of information for studies in modern African popular music.Â" ÂAkin Euba Brand NEW unread book.
