Muze PNote As the son of the late Nigerian legend Fela Kuti, Femi Kuti emerged in the 1990s as the crown prince of Afrobeat, keeping the spirit of his father's funky sound and political message alive while adding a contemporary touch. The two-disc DEFINITIVE COLLECTION expands on the previous Femi anthology, BEST OF, including pretty much everything offered on the latter plus a second disc of remixes and dub versions. While the pulsing grooves and punchy horns of the classic Afrobeat style are the dominant element throughout, the addition of hip-hop (Common guests on "Missing Link") and soul (see Jaguar Wright's contribution on "Fight To Win") moves things from homage to vital musical/social message, which is exactly what Fela would have wanted anyhow.

Artist Overview

While the London-born Femi Kuti struggled to escape the shadow of his legendary father, the iconic Fela Kuti, Femi has developed a sound distinctly his own by incorporating forms like hip-hop and dancehall into the afrobeat framework. And while he may have expanded upon his father's musical blueprint, he has followed lock-step in Fela's fierce and outspoken political stances. A vocal critic of the Nigerian government and American imperialism, Femi has spoken out on AIDS relief, corruption, and the need for a strong black diaspora. He's a continuing reminder of music's liberating power.
