Fela Anikulapo Kuti and Egypt 80 Band
I know, i know ... we've all heard the "Fela" gears before. Expense Shit, Water no get Enemy etc. The thing is, i'm snowed in and off work today, so i thought i'd share what i'm hitting at the moment. First heard Power Show on Gilles Peterson's worldwide quite a few years ago, and it's stuck as a big favourite of mine. If you've not heard this, watch out, 15 minutes of heavy afrobeat.
