A Celebration of Fela Kuti
Live Performance by Tony Allen
We are proud to be working with two of our favorite and two of the most legitimate Afrobeat teachers of our time, Tony Allen and Rich Medina! We have had the chance to work with Tony Allen a couple of times before. Once when we paired him with Roy Ayers in 2008 and another when we tour managed and booked the Brasilintime project in Europe. He is one of our favorite people on planet earth and one of the greatest drummers of all time! We also have a very long and awesome history of working with Rich Medina! One of the best djs on planet earth today and father of the infamous Jump n Funk parties in NYC!
Fela Kuti, his message and the music he is credited for, means a lot to us over at ArtDontSleep. We don’t take his heritage in vein and aim to present a very serious homage to his greatness and the impact he has forever left on music lovers around the world.
We are also pleased to present our newest podcast, and Rich Medina was kind enough to dig into his Afrobeat Archives and bless us with a 100% all vinyl and LIVE mix! Download and or stream it free, here!
“The mix is a segment of an entire night of Jump N Funk at Martinez Gallery (RIP) in Greenpoint, Brooklyn from 5/17/03. Before Serato, and no CDs, this is strictly analog Afro Heat for y’all. Love Afro Life!” –Rich Medina
