Seun Kuti & Egypt 80

Seun kuti Jazz Cafe

Seun Anikulapo Kuti, the youngest son of late and great Fela Kuti, will be taking to our stage for two unforgettable nights of afrobeat in its purest form this summer. Egypt 80, the same band that was fronted by his legendary father, will be joining him on stage to get the audience dancing the night away.After the release of his now renowned album Africa With Fury: Rise, Seun Kuti, who started performing by his father’s side at only nine years old, proved that he not only inherited his father’s talent, but also his passion and anti-establishment fury. Kuti’s 2014 album A Long Way To The Beginning and 2016’s Struggle Sounds also gained critical acclaim, whilst his most recent album, this year’s Black Times on Strut is his best work yet; the songs are beautifully intricate and, as always, defiantly political.Egypt 80, astoundingly good musicians in their own right, will play with Kuti to deliver explosive, fast, hard power on our stage. Together, they will bring Fela Kuti’s afrobeat legacy back to life.

Review: Seun Kuti & Egypt 80 @ Stanley Halls (London; Monday 4th May 2018)

Walking into the small, church-like Stanley Halls, one could hear the familiar stabbing-horn sounds of afrobeat emanating from the hall. The venue almost juxtaposed the performance on stage; as one entered, a musical, colourful spectacle erupted from the stage, held together with aged wooden beams and high ceilings. The sound…

Album Review: Seun Kuti & Egypt 80 – Black Times [Strut Records; 2nd March 2018]

Black Times opens with warm congas, followed by afro-typical cyclical riffs on the guitar, layered with repetitive female chorus, the introduction of bass and full drum kit, then a short break before bursting full power back into the groove – this time with an added horn section of trumpet, tenor…
