KING KUTI: Father of Afrobeat

SKOOLWERK APPAREL X DJ RAHDU (of Bamalovesoul.com) COLLABORATION

Liner Notes:

We're "Felabrating" the legendary Nigerian-born Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti with our KING KUTI: The Father of Afrobeat tee. This clean, meticulous illustration is the 2nd illustration by our graphic collaborator DJ Rahdu of bamalovesoul.com.

With this tee we're remembering one of Africa's most influential public figures in music, politics and pop culture. The singer, musician, political and human rights activist recorded dozens of albums during his very influential and challenging career. Fela Kuti not only pioneered the musical style of Afrobeat (a fusion of jazz, funk, Ghanaian/Nigerian highlife, psychedelic rock and traditional West African chants and rhythms), he was an outspoken critic of of the Nigerian government, the corrupt officials and the mistreatment of Nigerian citizens.
Through album re-issues, stage plays, documentary films and annual dance party/festival celebrations newer generations worldwide will continue to be introduced to the legacy of Fela Kuti.

"If you're playing music and people don't feel something, you're not doing shit."
- Fela Kuti
