Fela Kuti

Live In Detroit 1986

African four album set in 1984 fela kuti had planned to leave nigeria to tour abroad but was arrested and imprisoned on dubious charges of 'currency trafficking' preventing him from leaving the country it took two years and efforts from amnesty international before fela once again was able to share his music with the world the music featured on this album was recorded the year of his release live at the fox theater in detroit the songs featured here the shortest clocking in at 29 minutes and 35 seconds aren't among fela's best known compositions though they did feature on studio albums with the egypt 80 band it's in these unbridled live performances though that the material truly comes alive complete with audience interaction the incredible musicianship of the band and kuti's inimitable vocal stylings it's evident that the audience as completely entranced fela kuti live in detroit is a document of one of the greatest performers of the 20th century
