We’re right in the thick of winter weather, and that likely means you’re trying to find a way to keep warm. One thing that’s certainly guaranteed to get the temperature rising is the music of Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti. Today we’ve got a treat for both your eyes and ears with copies of Alex Gibney‘s documentary “Finding Fela,” along with the soundtrack, to give away to some lucky readers.
The two-hour documentary explores the explosive music of Fela Anikulapo Kuti, his political activism in his native Nigeria, which often formed the background of his work, and his rise to fame around the world. Mixing vintage interviews, performance footage, and more, this is a fascinating look at a man whose sound continues to make significant vibrations to this day.
