Fela Anikulapo Kuti (1938-1997)
My President for ever...

Here's a tribute to Fela by Cheikh Lô, The Nubians, Manu Dibango, Chateau Flight, Bugz In The Attic, Roy Hargrove, Nile Rodgers & Money Mark.
It's from the LP Red Hot + Riot
One of the best album i ever heard....A tribute to Fela for the Red Hot's AIDS awareness activites. There are many compilation and project album for this association. This one for Fela is just amazing....Making so much sense for everyone involved and listeners.
I'm a big fan of Fela from 1st LP to collabs with Ginger Baker, all his politics actions and of course his compositions....Influenced so many people (just listen the last TV on the radio and you'll know why).....
On this album, there are so many guests....i can't mention everyone but you have Blackalicious, Dead Prez, D'angelo, Fela's son Femi, M'Shell, Ron Blake, Archie Shepp, Baaba Maal, Antibalas (of course), Ray Lema, Lenine, Talib Kweli......and much much more
(sorry im not linking them)
The Red Hot Organization has donated over $7,000,000 world-wide in support to the following organizations since 1990, including nearly $100,000 in operations grants to under-funded community organizations throughout Africa in 2006

This CD is still available so

if you downloaded, gonna download or downloading right now
You're a sucker, and you disserve nothing except....shame.

This is a real and true project

Enjoy this 2 tracks, play it loud and when i say A LA LA LA LA
You know what you have to say....
