Another Seun

So a couple months ago whilst listening to GP, I was put on to another of Fela Kuti's offspring by the name of Seun Kuti. Much like his (I assume half ) brother Femi Kuti, he is continuing the legacy of the afro beat which his father championed, but unlike his brother he more successfully captures that raw sound that was commonplace in his father's (mostly 70's) works.

Check out the video- you gotta love the huge mosquitoes on stilts too!

And if you dont know who Fela is, please get to know one, dude is as important to West Africa as James Brown was to America.
