World Music Legends

Fela Kuti
The late, great Nigerian bandleader Fela Kuti was one of the most dynamic, original and uncompromising musicians to emerge from the great post-colonial African pop explosion in the 1960s and ’70s.
Style: Afrobeat
By Tom Pryor

Miriam Makeba
The end of apartheid in South Africa allowed those who’d been forced to flee to come home. Miriam Makeba, the country’s jewel of a singer who’d left her homeland in 1960, returned as both a musical and political icon.
Style: Folk
By Chris Nickson

Amália Rodrigues
Amália Rodrigues brought distinction to the Portuguese fado style, taking it from the back streets of Lisbon to concert halls around the world.
Style: Fado
By Chris Nickson

Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan
The late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan not only transcended time, but also language and religion. There was magic when he opened his mouth, a sense of holy ecstasy that was exciting and emotional.
Style: Qawwali
By Chris Nickson
