All in the Family


The children of legends have a hard time breaking into their own. That goes double for Seun Kuti, son of Afrobeat revolutionary, Fela Kuti.

Fela Kuta is a hard act to follow: The man played 6-hour concerts. He had 27 wives. He faced down military bigades and laughed. His music started riots. He had talent and moves, too, and more than a few of his offspring acquired it. Femi, Sean's brother, certainly has it, as does Seun, who started playing with his dad's band, Egypt 80, when he was eight years old. Now Seun, the youngest of the Kuti clan, will bring his dad's band - all 16 of them - to Fujirock to see what kind of moves we have out east. Let's not disappoint them, shall we?
