In Sola Olorunyomi's book, a popular artist and a counter-hegemonic activist of the hardest grain meets his most engagingly, cerebral interpreter. Odia Ofeimun, Former President, Association of Nigerian Authors (ANA). This is a patient, thoughtful and critical guide into the labyrinths of the production of Afrobeat as musical practice and cultural politics. Often shirtless and armed with his trademark saxophone, Fela Anikulapo Kuti tore his way into popular culture with Afrobeat music.

Fela and the Imagined Continent in Portuguese MOBI by Sola Olorunyomi 1592210724.

In the seventies, as signs of decay began to show in the capitalist experiment of the newly independent African countries, a "bard of the misrule" emerged on the streets of Lagos. Often shirtless and armed with his trademark saxophone, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti tore his way into popular culture with Afrobeat music. Blending ethno-traditional forms with the reigning highlife and jazz rhythms. Afrobeat drew lyrics from the flip side of neo-colonial society and Fela's London and American experience in the sixties.
