AIDS awareness organization Red Hot today releases Red Hot + Fela, a Fela Kuti themed compilation featuring remakes and covers alike with collaborations spanning the genres of electronic, hip-hop, soul, rock, and classical.
Participants include tUnE-yArDs, Questlove, Angelique Kidjo, Nneka, Sinkane, Amayo, M1, Baloji, Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes, as well as Kyp Malone and Tunde Adembimpe of TV On The Radios, amongst many others. It is indeed very serious out here in these streets.
This Friday, October 11, don’t miss what’s sure to be a mind-bending performance by My Morning Jacket, Merril Garbus, Brittany Howard and Antibalas Horns on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.
New Yorkers can look forward to a Felabration at Brooklyn Bowl on October 17 – peep the flyer after the jump! Also, don’t sleep on all the other Felabrations happening throughout October and November as well.
