Fela Kuti

I buy my cat food at Beastly Bite on Court street off of Atlantic; about $150 a month maybe more – I live with four cats, one of which is a big male, not fat, 30 lbs [13.6 kg]. Usually they play reggae, Saturday they were playing Fela Kuti. I had never heard him before.

His music is very powerful. I do not know enough about African music to separate the Caribbean, Jazz and African elements from each other. I hear a lot of Jazz in his music, but that is my background so I hear what I know.

Here is a free sample.
