Live in Detroit 1986 marks the first new material released from Fela Kuti in 20 years. I wrote about it for This is Africa. Read it here.

If you love Afrobeat, then you need no introduction to Oluseun Anikulapo Kuti, better known as Seun Kuti. He is the youngest son of the legendary Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti. Seun currently leads his father’s old band, The Egypt 80 and they’ve been on a blistering tour schedule. I caught up with Seun ahead of his forthcoming show in New York (which was on Sunday) to chat with him about Fela, Afrobeat, Occupy Nigeria, the future of Nigeria and why he named his second and most recent studio album From Africa with Fury: Rise. You can read the full interview here.
