[youtube id=”EX5c-fneNUw”] Seun Kuti’s Black Times album is coming out March 2nd. Carlos Santana appears on the album and in this video they meet and talk about people claiming the inner divine. Santana plays guitar on the lead track “Black Times” and Kuti says,
“The track talks aboutÂ that firstÂ moment of clarity for a Motherland person, that moment ofÂ understanding about who you are and your position in the systemÂ running the world today.”
Santana shared the stage with Kuti’s father Fela in 1986 on the Amnesty International Conspiracy Of Hope tour. The musicians developed a mutual respect for each other and Santana has been connected to Kuti’s family ever since that time.
Black Times is Seun Kuti’s fourth album and the music is socially-conscious with the intent to spark conversation.
