FELA KUTI - FELA LIVE WITH GINGER BAKER
"Fela Live with Ginger Baker" is a 1971 album by Nigerian musician and activist Fela Kuti, recorded during his visit to London with his band, Africa 70, and British drummer Ginger Baker. The album features four extended tracks that blend traditional African rhythms and instruments with jazz and funk influences. Kuti's politically charged lyrics and charismatic stage presence, coupled with the band's tight grooves and improvisational solos, create a dynamic and engaging listening experience. The album is considered a landmark in Afrobeat music, which is characterized by its fusion of African rhythms and western influences. It is also notable for its collaboration between Kuti and Baker, who was a member of the rock band Cream and had a long-standing interest in African music.
