Femi Kuti is the heart and soul of modern Afrobeat. When he’s home in Nigeria, Femi and his band play at The Shrine, the dancehall and concert space he built as a memorial to his father, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti. Femi recorded most of the album in chaotic Lagos, with musicians from Positive Force, and his son, Omorinmade Anikulapo – Kuti.
One People One World sees Femi returning to the music’s African roots. Hints of reggae, highlife, soul, R&B and other African, Caribbean and African American flavors go swirling through the mix, adding depth and complexity to the arrangements, but the influences don’t distract from Femi’s signature sound.
His first album « Shoki Shoki » was released in 1994, followed by « Wonder Wonder » en 1995, « Fight to win » en 2001 et « Africa Shrine » en 2004. Up to 2021 he released not less than 12 albums. In 2021 he released a brand new one, « Stop the hate »
