Femi Kuti Artist Snapshot:

While the London-born Femi Kuti struggled to escape the shadow of his legendary father, the iconic Fela Kuti, Femi has developed a sound distinctly his own by incorporating forms like hip-hop and dancehall into the afrobeat framework. And while he may have expanded upon his father's musical blueprint, he has followed lock-step in Fela's fierce and outspoken political stances. A vocal critic of the Nigerian government and American imperialism, Femi has spoken out on AIDS relief, corruption, and the need for a strong black diaspora. He's a continuing reminder of music's liberating power.

Product Notes

For a long time, Femi Kuti has lived in the shadow of his father, the late, great Fela Kuti. Femi''s last album, Shoki Shoki, served notice that he was developing into a major force in his own right. Fight to Win is the man stepping into his maturity. From the killer funky opening groove of "Do Your Best," this is a man with something to say, and the voice and words to say it. "Traitors of Africa" is scathing in its damnation of Nigerian politicians, while "One Day Someday" offers hope for the future. Perhaps the most moving track, however, is the slower "''97," an impassioned and understated memorial to the members of the Kuti family who died during that year. Instrumentally, this is a much more sophisticated record, not so frantic, but still twitching its hips and allowing Femi to show that he''s become an excellent saxophonist. Femi is, at this point, poised to become a music figure on par with Bob Marley: a remarkable singer and songwriter who can stand as a voice for the downtrodden around the world. --Chris Nickson
