Based in London, KALAKUTA features master musician Emeka Elendu of Fela Kuti’s Afrika 70 / Egypt 80. The band performs legendary Fela Kuti rhythms such as ‘Zombie’, ‘Water Get No Enemy’ as well as fresh original compositions.
With a slick, new rhythm section, Emeka has put together an outstanding outfit, playing with passion, the revolutionary Nigerian afro-beat that defined the genre, led by a musician who was part of the original founding group that pioneered the sound during deep political unrest. Kalakuta is the latest incarnation of the original Fela root vibration. Be ready for hypnotic, explosive grooves and to dance the whole night away.
