every year in october “felabrations” take place around the world to commemorate the life of the legendary nigerian musician and activist, fela kuti who was born october 5, 1938. this performance by yasiin bey and the hypnotic brass ensemble of fela’s classic “water no get enemy” took place during this year’s felabration at the shrine in chicago. i shrieked when i watched it because i love yasiin and i love fela and the band was rockin! lol such a divine combination. #keepitKING.
