One of the world’s true musical revolutionaries, Fela Ransome-Kuti’s life and work embody most of the contradictions inherent in any major collusion of Western and African styles of thought and art. Born in Lagos, Nigeria in 1938 to an affluent Christian family and educated in London, Fela was just another minor highlife bandleader until he received funk’s call via Sierra Leonese James Brown-imitator Geraldo Pino in 1966. By weaving funk rhythms into highlife, Fela developed Afrobeat, a mesmerizingly potent style he has spent years refining.
