Femi Kuti / Made Kuti - Legacy +

PARTISAN RECORDS

  • £23.99


Legendary activist and Afrobeat originator Fela Kuti used his music to lament social injustices and political corruption in his native Nigeria throughout the 70's and 80's, and while his impact can still be felt in Nigeria and around the world, it most greatly affected Fela’s son Femi, and his son Made, both of whom carry his legacy as torchbearers for change. The appropriately-titled double-album, Legacy +, is, in fact, two new separate complementary albums from Femi and Made, Stop The Hate and For(e)ward, released together in a deluxe package.

Both of the albums are steeped in the tradition of Afrobeat and political action, each with their own unique vision. Femi’s Stop The Hate honours Fela in a traditionally fun, sharply political and affirming way. Meanwhile Made’s For(e)ward is a modern and progressive freedom manifesto, pushing boundaries of the subgenre even further, with Made performing every instrument.

Both albums feature portraits of Femi and Made by Brooklyn-based artist Delphine Desane.
