Africa For Africa

Africa For Africa by Femi Kuti
Released: Apr 2011
Despite his decades at this, it's still hard to hear a Femi Kuti album and not think about his dad, especially on a record like this. Known for his willingness to experiment with the poppier possibilities of Fela's genre, Femi takes what is perhaps his rootiest approach to Afrobeat ever here. Africa is a pulsating bonfire of sound that burns globalization, African politics and corruption, but does it with thoughtfulness and musical warmth. Femi's pop predilections come into play with his succinctness: he boils the fire and ire of dad's epic jams into more pointed, searing short pieces.
