Film: Finding Fela! (2014) (15)
Finding Fela tells the story of Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s life, his music, his social and political importance. He created a new musical movement, Afrobeat, using that forum to express his revolutionary political opinions against the dictatorial Nigerian government of the 1970s and 1980s. His influence helped bring a change towards democracy in Nigeria and promoted Pan Africanist politics to the world.
This film event will be introduced by Forever International, they will talk about impact of black musicians and artists on the music industry. This event also links with our music programme; Dele Sosimi (who toured with Fela Kuti), performs at the Hat Factory on Friday 21 October - Find out more here.
