#Felabration: 5 Fela Covers To Jam To Right Now
This week 20 years ago, the greatest African musician and artist Fela Kuti died. Therefore, its only right that we felabrate the man whose music, just as he wished for African music generally, has transcended entertainment to be useful in other spheres of life. That’s why we have selected a few covers by other musicians to felbrate Africa’s great.
First on the list is this cool AF mashup by Yasiin Bey covering Water No Get Enemy
A space cover of Trouble Sleep by My Morning Jacket
There’s this groovy version of Lady by Falana.
If you love brass-work check out the ladies ensemble of Kokoroko Afrobeat Collective as the redo Colonial Mentality
Finally this awesome cover of Palava by Brymo
