Okayafrica Presents: Felebration 2013

A hip-shaking lineup to celebrate the Afrobeat icon

"One of the most incredible places on earth."

- Rolling Stone (on Brooklyn Bowl)
Even if you don’t know who Fela Kuti is, chances are your favorite artists do. Paul McCartney and Thom Yorke cited the Nigerian born Afrobeat legend as a musical influence and the human rights activist even inspired a hugely successful Off Broadway production. To salute Kuti, the FELA! Band, Sahr Ngaujah, and Bajah + The Dry Eye Crew will perform. Plus there’ll be a special edition of Bowl Train with DJ Questlove afterward. The music will be electrifying, the beats inventive, and the energy unbeatable. General admission. Over 21s only.
