Tribute to Fela – Seun Kuti & Egypt 80, Ibeyi, Tony Allen, Cheick Tidiane Seck, Talib Kweli

Year: 2016
Director: Samuel Thiebaut
Genre: Live Show


Seun Kuti, Fela’s youngest son, continues to distill the legacy of his father, the creator and undisputed king of Afrobeat, on international stages. A genius who died almost twenty years ago. Surrounded by the mythical group Egypt 80 in which he officiates since 1997 as a singer and then as a saxophonist, Seun calls on many guests for this evening at the Grand Hall of La Villette: Among them, the Franco-Cuban twin sisters Ibeyi who conquered Europe with a duo of minimal instrumentations and dazzling vocal harmonies, the unavoidable Malian keyboardist and vocalist Cheick Tidiane Seck or the Brooklyn rapper Talib Kweli, Mos Def’s sidekick. … A line-up that promises a supercharged concert, more eclectic than ever!
