    The History of Afrobeat

    A man who married 27 wives in one day, the father of Afrobeat, an eccentric, social activist—many great accomplishments are associated with the late Fela Anikulapo Kuti. His legacy lives on through his music, his activism, and the musicians of today he influenced. To achieve this notoriety, he synthesized various cultural influences to create an entirely new sound which still lives on today. Apart from the music, Fela continued his theatrical performances into a uninterrupted artistic statement off stage breaking down barriers of private and public life.
