cavestrummer Fela saw a dimension of existence that few others could see; he was like Einstein, Tesla or Michelangelo, but Fela's realm was sound. And he worked that realm into something we all could experience. And Tony Allen's rhythmic architecture holds it all together. Masters, both.

Rich Larson Just stumbled across this by accident - but it's my introduction to Fela Kuti and AfroBeat. Favorite cut is the 16 minute drum solo featuring former Cream drummer Ginger Baker and Africa 70's drummer Tony Allen - but it's not available to listen to unless you purchase the album. Favorite track: Let's Start.

Jon Jekel I still remember the first time I heard Fela Kuti. "Roforofo Fight." Years later, his music still blows my mind. Favorite track: Let's Start.
