World Cafe Playlist for 08/02/2021

Femi and Made Kuti join host Stephen Kallao

Femi Kuti became a leader of the Afrobeat movement by learning from his father, Fela Kuti, who pioneered the genre – Now, Femi’s time has come to teach the next generation. It’s a family affair on the new double-album, Legacy+, as Femi pairs his latest record with the debut record from his son, Made Kuti. Just as Femi picked up the torch from his father, Made is making music that pushes the boundaries of what Afrobeat music can be in the 21st century. World Cafe, we’ll hear incredible live performances from both of them on stage in Nigeria, and they talk with host Stephen Kallao about the legacy of the Kuti family.
