Stormy music, merciless rhythms and an incredible groove: Seun is the son of Fela Kuti, the founder of Afrobeat, which once set Nigeria’s dictators in fear and panic. During his concerts, the young Seun – who is equally singer, soloist and saxophonist – reflect his father’s anger, yet has the charisma and wit of a great entertainer. Even as a child, Seun was part of Fela’s legendary band, the Egypt 80, which still accompanies him to this day. Seun plays Afrobeat in the family tradition and breathes his own, fresh spirit into them with influences from Rap and Hip Hop. A few months ago he released an EP with three new songs, co-produced by Robert Glasper.
