Femi Kuti - Saturday, July 27
The heart and soul of the modern Afrobeat, Femi Kuti, is coming to Rotterdam! As the son of the founder of afro beat, Fela Kuti, Femi Kuti continues his father's tradition in his own way with his band The Positive Force.
The style that has conquered the world in recent decades consists of a mix of traditional Nigerian drum rhythms, the smooth groove of highlife, a touch of American soul, funk and R&B and politically charged lyrics. Kuti and his band broaden the horizon of Afrobeat, with influences from punk and hip hop, among other things, while respecting the origin and meaning of the style. In the latest album "One People One World" you experience pure Afrobeat with a political message, but also one of hope and love. Femi Kuti: “I want to give the younger generation a message of hope. Despite all our problems, we can create greatness in our lives. "
