Young Kuti AKA Seun Kuti & Egypt 80 are gearing up for a night of supreme afro-beat vibes with a show at Philly’s Union Transfer with the incomparable hometown hero Rich Medina on the ones and twos on September 8th. The show is presented by the homies Okayafrica and Little Giant, bringing you a legendary night of organic funk and music-nerd merriments, following the release of Kuti’s recent Robert Glasper-produced A Long Way To The Beginning EP, which features 7 tracks of reimagined grooves for Kuti-loyalists and newcomers alike.
Its a rare opportunity to see Fela‘s legendary ensemble fronted by his kin, who has been leading the charge in his father’s absence since he tragically passed back in ’97. Ticketing information can be found over at OKA along with a tee-shirt giveaway of some of their illest Fela-inspired joints. Philly prepare yourself for an afro-beat extravaganza the likes of which you’ll rarely get the chance to see again. Hit the links below and get with it. Oh, and be sure to cop A Long Way To The Beginning via iTunes for a taste of what’s to come.
