Femi Kuti Announces US Summer Tour In Support Of 2 CD Definitive Collection
Published May 15, 2007

Like father, like son. Femi Kuti is the undisputed inheritor of the genius of Nigerian Afro-beat superstar Fela Anikulapo-Kuti. His version of Afro-beat is the most exciting sound to emerge from Nigeria for years, borrowing the best elements from his father's powerfully polyrhythmic prototype of funk, jazz, and a sound that took James Brown's beat back to Africa.

There is enormous interest around Femi in 2007, in that it is 10 Years since his fathers death and it is 200 years since the abolition of slavery, an issue that Femi is very outspoken on.

The Definitive Collection: Femi Kuti (Wrasse) draws on all 3 of Femi's albums including tracks from the rare first self titled album, with stunning tracks Wonder Wonder and Survival. Also included is his duet with Rachid Taha singing the haunting Ala Jalkoum and a remake of one of Fela's favorites Water No Get Enemy which was on the Red Hot and Riot tribute album. This is coupled with a limited edition bonus CD of 10 of the finest mixes of all things Femi Kuti.

For a complete listing of Femi Kuti’s touring schedule, please check out the World Music Concerts section of the Global Rhythm website.
