Fela's Footprints

Playlist for Spin The Globe - KAOS radio
27 June 2008

This week's show was prompted by the current tour of Seun Kuti, son of the great Afrobeat creator Fela Anikulapo Kuti. Well, one of his sons, from one of his many marriages. Since Seun's people have yet to send any of his music to SoundRoots/KAOS (hello! people!), we spun music from another son -- Femi -- as well as from musicians who inspired or were inspired by Fela. The second hour found us spinning the globe more broadly.
