Seun Kuti & Egypt 80 Announce U.S. Tour

Fresh off the mighty From Africa With Fury: Rise, Seun Anikulapo Kuti heads up Egypt 80, the extraordinary Afrobeat Orchestra first fronted by his renowned father. The album was not only praised for continuing the musical legacy of his father, Fela Kuti, but also because Seun found his own idiosyncratic voice as songwriter, singer, and band leader, its songs and sonic approach marked by provocative edge and mature self-assurance. Production was provided by the legendary Brian Eno, John Reynolds, Godwin Logie, and Kuti himself. The four worked in unison to masterfully capture Seun and Egypt 80’s extraordinary power, fraught with the scorching rhythms and kinetic funk energy that has earned the band – as ever, under the leadership of musical director/keyboardist Lekan Animashaun – worldwide acclaim as one of today’s most incendiary live acts. With Kuti’s booming vocal stylings at the forefront, songs like “African Soldiers” and “Mr. Big Thief” are fueled by call-and-response hooks, breakneck tempos, and combative, topical lyricism which firmly sets the classic Egypt 80 sound in the modern era.
