Femi Kuti’s New Release – Africa for Africa + Win Tickets for US Tour

On his album Africa For Africa, released today, Femi Kuti articulates a raw and forceful call to the long tradition of Afrobeat. Recorded in the same studio where he produced his first recordings with his father Fela Kuti and his breakthrough solo album No Cause For Alarm?, Africa for Africa is in several ways a return to Femi’s roots. Deliberately less-produced than its predecessor Day by Day, it aims to present Afrobeat in its roughest, purest form. Femi continues to develop his activist voice on the new album, with the lyrics addressing government oppression and other modern problems in Africa, but the music retains a visceral power.
