The historic Felabration Music Festival conceived by Yeni Kuti, daughter of the African music icon and legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti to commemorate his life and celebrate his legacy is coming to the UK on 30th August 2019 spearheaded by Fela’s daughter Shalewa Kuti and DLA World.
With Music being an integral aspect of African culture, Felabration is one of the longest standing, most attended and ground-breaking music festivals in Nigeria that stages over 150 of the best African Artists over a one-week extravaganza at the New Afrika Shrine, Nigeria.
Fela’s music and influence has travelled the global music landscape. The UK explosion and rise is arguably the biggest musical breakthrough in decades that is also responsible for the preservation of the African culture through music, fashion and arts in recent years.
It is fair to say, that all Afrobeats artists are descendants of or influenced by Fela Kuti in some way and for one day, the UK will celebrate Fela Kuti and host some of the biggest names in Afrobeats, Afropop and Afrosoul who will incorporate and showcase the Fela’s music, his charisma and razzmatazz on the big stage at Indigo At The O2.
The festival will foster unity and greatness and will be a show stopping experience from psychedelic stage performances, décor recreating the ambiance of The Shrine, on-screen visuals to cultural dances and the best line up in Afrobeats!
