Music: Afrobeat Alert!

FELAsmA new Fela Kuti CD, The Best of the Black President 2, will be released by Knitting Factory Records in early February. It features 12 tracks, including a 16:41 minute version of “Sorrow Tears And Blood,” previously unreleased. The two CD set clocks a total of 155 minutes of tremendous music. If you’re the liner notes type, you’ll be happy to know the musician Akon and Afrobeat historian Chris May wrote a 16 page booklet about Fela Kuti and the history of Afrobeat. Have a look and listen to this fabulous 1978 Fela Kuti concert in Berlin.

The Best of the Black President 2 will be available in early February 2013. Order it via www.knittingfactoryrecords.com.
