Femi Kuti and the Shrine TV

Back in the 70s, Fela Kuti started a community around a place he called The Shrine where he would perform, congregate, etc. The legacy of the Shrine is now being carried on by his son, Femi and I'm delighted to just now find out that they have a internet TV station! It isnt often that you see an internet TV station based on music coming out of Africa, and I dont know how frequently they will upload it but this trailer and the second one are holding me over for now. Go ahead and subscribe to their channel on youtube.
I gotta hit up Nigeria on my next Ghana trip and see whats popping at the Shrine.

big ups to Wuzz the Bruzz
