Album: A Tribute to Fela Kuti: Felatastic
Artist: G-DO & Xception
On 22 April 2011, G-DO & Xception released A Tribute to Fela Kuti: Felatastic on Goal Records. As the title suggests, this album is a tribute to Fela Anikulapo Kuti, the legendary Nigerian musician and composer, pioneer of Afrobeat music, and human rights activist. What started out as one song in the spirit of Fela Kuti for the new G-DO & Xception album ‘Sankofa’ (to be released summer 2011), soon turned into a full ten song-tribute album. The bridge between G-DO & Xception and Fela Kuti had been established a long time ago, so making this tribute album was a spontaneous process as they found themselves possessed by the "Spirit of the shrine."
