"The driving rhythms and message of Fela Kuti's Afrobeat never let up."
--Jennifer Hullick, The Advertiser
Fela! The Concert radiates joy, leaving the audiences on their feet wanting more. The electric sounds and powerful lyrics of Fela Kuti, the founding father of Afrobeat, are set against a soaring canvas of projected images, accompanied by a live Afrobeat band, and singers and dancers from the original Broadway cast bring Fela’s provocative spirit to life.
Before the performance, join us at the iconic Unisphere in Flushing Meadows Corona Park at 5:30 PM for a FREE community drum circle led by members of the FELA! cast. Register below, bring your percussion instruments, and join the party!
