Femi Kuti and the Positive Force

There's one thing that can't be denied about Femi Kuti and the Positive Force's set at Forecastle; it won't sound like anything else you're likely to hear all weekend. The eldest son of Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti, Femi Kuti has kept his father's memory alive while writing his own chapter in the history of Afrobeat. Pairing searing political commentary with uncontrollably danceable beats and one of the most explosive stage shows at Forecastle, Femi Kuti is a “Positive Force” not to be missed. Femi Kuti and the Positive Force will perform at Forecastle on Sunday, July 17.
