Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Femi Kuti

Live at the Shrine

2005-06-28

Femi Kuti is the heir to the throne of the “Africa Shrine”, the mythical temple of Afro-Beat music created by his late father Fela Kuti. Fela merged music and activism in his 30-year struggle against injustice in post-Colonial Nigeria.

In October of 2000, three years after his father’s death, Femi Kuti created a physical center for Afro-Beat ideology, The New Africa Shrine in Lagos, Nigeria. Every Sunday night, people from all over the world gather at The Shrine for music and inspiration by Femi and his band.

The cultural phenomenon of the “Sunday Jump” is now the subject of the Documentary film - Femi Kuti: Live at the Shrine - now available in a dual CD/DVD release from Palm Pictures.
