So over the past weekend, I had been playing a lot of Afrobeat records, as I had a few Afrobeat albums that were in desperate need of being reviewed here on this site. Naturally, that had brought me back to the genre’s godfather Fela Kuti. And of course, YouTube is a wonderful place because I managed to discover this incredible live footage of Fela with his Africa ‘70 at the Berliner Jazztage in Berlin, Germany in 1978. 

As you’ll see from this almost 90 minute show, Fela was an incredibly charismatic, dynamic personality, and man when him and his band really got into a groove, it was a sight.
