MARCH 2ND 

ELEC­TRIC BRIX­TON 

9PM — 4AM

Seun Kuti, young­est son of late and great Fela Kuti, will be tak­ing the stage at Elec­tric Brix­ton for a rare, once in a life­time show. Egypt 80, the same band that was fron­ted by his legendary father, will be join­ing him on stage to get the audi­ence dan­cing the night away. After the release of his now renowned album Africa With Fury: Rise, Seun Kuti, who star­ted per­form­ing by his father’s side at only 9 years old, proved that he not only inher­ited his father’s tal­ent, but also his pas­sion and anti-estab­lish­ment fury. Kuti’s most recent album, A Long Way to the Begin­ning, has also gained crit­ic­al acclaim. The songs are faster, harder, beau­ti­fully intric­ate and, as always, defi­antly polit­ic­al.

Egypt 80, astound­ingly good musi­cians in their own right, will work with Kuti to deliv­er explos­ive power filled with wild, funky energy and deli­ciously com­pel­ling rhythms. Togeth­er, they will bring Fela Kuti’s afrobeat leg­acy to life, all while spin­ning his clas­sic Afrobeat sound into the mod­ern era.

Dele Sosimi, ori­gin­al mem­ber of Fela Kuti’s band, will be join­ing Seun Kuti. Sosimi will be bring­ing his viva­cious Afrobeat Orches­tra with him to deliv­er a whirl­wind of afro-funk.

Agbeko, the Manchester-based 11 piece Afrobeat/Ethiojazz band who spe­cial­ise in sunny tun­es, are the cherry on top of this astound­ingly good line up.

Pre­pare your dan­cing feet for what will be the Afrobeat night of the year at a massive, icon­ic Lon­don ven­ue.
“You could take the fact that Seun Kuti, not his older brother Femi, heads Egypt 80 as con­clus­ive evid­ence that he is the bat­on-bear­er for Fela Kuti’s leg­acy” — The Quietus
