The Afrobeat master in his prime!

Fela Kuti is known as the creator of the Afrobeat style of music.  Combining traditional African music with rock, jazz, and funk music into "endless grooves".  These rhythms would literally be played all night long in Fela's personal dance club.  This album was recorded during his stay in Los Angeles and is a great example of Afrobeat at it's finest.   It is also a document of the turning point where Fela became aware of the Black Panther movement and was inspired to incorporate more political themes in his music.
