Seun Kuti Tours the U.S.


Son of afrobeat legend and multi-talented instrumentalist/vocalist Seun Kuti is heading out on a U.S. tour starting today. The tour begins in Atlanta and takes the young star to the west coast and back again.

In case you missed it, last year his sophomore LP, From Africa with Fury: Rise was one of favorites. Produced by Brian Eno, the album was full of fiery, fast-paced afrobeat with a strong socio-political slant. Check out our review here and our " Mixtape Special " program where Seun was featured. Also, we interviewed Seun about the album as well last year, which you can watch below.
