Legacy +

Femi Kuti, Made Kuti

Legendary activist and Afrobeat originator, Fela Kuti, used his music to lament social injustices and political corruption in his native Nigeria. Fela’s legacy spans decades and genres, touching on jazz, pop, funk, hip-hop, rock, and beyond. While this impact can be felt in Nigeria and the entire world, it also greatly affected Fela’s son Femi and his son Made, both of whom carry his legacy as torchbearers for change. Partisan Records/Liberator Music will release two albums from Femi and Made, packaged together and appropriately titled Legacy +.

Both albums that make up Legacy + are steeped in the tradition of Afrobeat invented by Fela, but each also offers their own unique vision. Femi’s ‘Stop The Hate’ honors Fela in a traditionally fun, sharply political, and affirming way. Meanwhile Made’s ‘For(e)ward' is a modern and progressive freedom manifesto, pushing boundaries of the subgenre even further. Made also performs every instrument on his album.

Legacy + on double CD, featuring Femi Kuti’s album Stop the Hate and Made Kuti’s album For(e)ward. The two CDs are housed in a deluxe 6 panel wallet with a 12-page booklet featuring artwork, photographs and lyrics.
