Femi Kuti & Made Kuti - Legacy +
Partisan Records release two albums from Femi and Made Kuti - sons of Fela Kuti - packaged together and appropriately titled ‘Legacy +’.
Both albums that make up ‘Legacy +’ are steeped in the tradition of Afrobeat invented by Fela but each also offers their own unique vision.
Femi’s ‘Stop The Hate’ honours Fela in a traditionally fun, sharply political and affirming way. Meanwhile Made’s ‘For(e)ward’ is a modern and progressive freedom manifesto, pushing boundaries of the subgenre even further. Made also performs every instrument on his album.
Both albums also feature portraits of Femi and Made, done by Brooklyn-based artist Delphine Desane, whose work was recently featured on the cover of Vogue Italia.
