Fela Kuti (15 October 1938 – 2 August 1997) is one of Africa’s cultural icon, hero and genius whose wisdom, radicalism, and politics were expressed through his music. Fela had a vision for a united Africa and was dedicated to the liberation and self-determination of all Africans and those in the diaspora. His life was marked by bravery, humanitarianism, fierce radicalism and honesty that serve as inspiration for all artists and activists all over the world. Through his creative genius, Fela created a musical genre which he called Afrobeat. His unparalleled body of work has influenced and continue to influence a wide range of musicians around the globe. This year, Felabration will be a vinyl music event with local vinyl DJ, Brother Mbango and South African-based Zimbabwean vinyl DJ, TheNew T:MEr, who will be spinning vinyl records of the legendary Fela Kuti and other Afrobeat/Afrofunk artists.
