Fela! The Concert brings the color, excitement, and Afrobeats dance party of the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical to McCarter, complete with performers from the original cast. It will be hard to stay in your seat as you experience the eclectic sounds and powerful lyrics of Nigerian musician and activist Fela Kuti—founding father of Afrobeat, one of the most celebrated and rebellious world music legends, and a charismatic fighter of human rights. As Fela Kuti, Adesola Osakalumi runs the performance from the legendary Afrika Shrine Club in 1970s Lagos, replete with girls, dancing, smoking, and politically-charged speeches. Bright and energetic, Fela! The Concert shows how music has been used to attack cultural imperialism, promote freedom, and champion traditional African culture. Tickets: $30 - $65
