Seen (and Heard) @ CalArts: Afro-beat Band

Where else but CalArts does a class lecture on Fela Kuti—the Nigerian Afro-beat pioneer and political activist—begin with a live performance?

Last week before Wanda Bryant’s Music Cultures: Music of Sub-Saharan Africa, CalArts’ Afro-beat Band performed Kuti’s “Je’Nwi Teni” (“Don’t Gag Me”) for the class.

We’ve posted a clip of the song above.
