A triumphant tale of courage, passion and love, Fela! is the true story of Kuti, who created a new type of music, Afrobeat, and mixed these pounding eclectic rhythms (a blend of jazz, funk and African rhythm and harmonies) with incendiary lyrics that openly attacked the corrupt and oppressive military dictatorships that rule Nigeria and much of Africa. His songs were an inspiration to millions. The exuberant and rebellious music of Afrobeat legend Fela Anikulapo-Kuti will fill the Ahmanson Theatre as Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith present the 2010 Best Musical Tony Award®-nominated Fela! for the first time to Los Angeles audiences.
