9781592210718: Afrobeat!: Fela and the Imagined Continent

In the seventies, as signs of decay began to show in the capitalist experiment of the newly independent African countries, a "bard of the misrule" emerged on the streets of Lagos. Often shirtless and armed with his trademark saxophone, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti tore his way into popular culture with Afrobeat music. Blending ethno-traditional forms with the reigning highlife and jazz rhythms. Afrobeat drew lyrics from the flip side of neo-colonial society and Fela's London and American experience in the sixties.
