FELA!, directed by Tony Award® winner Bill T. Jones, is a provocative hybrid of dance,
theatre and music exploring the extravagant world of Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti. The show
has become an international sensation having been performed in three continents.

A triumphant tale of courage, passion and love, FELA! is the true story of the
legendary Kuti, who created a type of music, Afrobeat, and mixed these pounding
eclectic rhythms (a blend of jazz, funk and African rhythm and harmonies)
with incendiary lyrics that ignited and inspired a generation.

Featuring many of Fela Kuti’s most captivating songs and Bill T. Jones’s visionary
staging, FELA! reveals Kuti's controversial life as an artist and political activist and
celebrates his pioneering music.
