The Tony Award-Winning Musical Fela! is in performance at Atlanta's Fox Theatre through March 6. This sight and sound spectacular tells the story of one of the most compelling figures in modern African music, Fela Anikulapo Kuti.
Kuti, who essentially invented Afro-beat, blending jazz, funk, and African music stylings, attempted to live the live of a politically aware artist in the midst of military dictatorship in his native Nigeria. Fela! tells this amazing story through music and dance.
