Guest Star: Kuti Family & Afrobeat
In this week's Guest Star, TRACE Urban takes a look at Fela Kuti's creation of Afrobeat and its influences today.
"Fela Kuti was one of the most important African artists of his generation. He was a committed musical genius and a provocateur. His discography is over 50 albums strong! His life story was recently made into a musical backed by Jay-Z and Will Smith. We look back at his exceptional career with his two sons, musicians Femiand Seun, as well as several specialists.
TRACE Urban interviews Femi Kuti, Seun Kuti, D'Banj, and P-Square about their thoughts on Fela and the genre.
