Seun Anikulapo Kuti - World People 01



Seun Kuti Paris Djs World People 01
Seun Anikulapo Kuti - World People #01
(MP3 Podcast on ParisDJs.com) 2011-04-18

Seun Anikulapo Kuti, the youngest son of Fela, is now in his late 20s. He grew up in Kalukaluta, Nigeria, and we asked him about his musical background during the 80s and the 90s… "It was all about Afrobeat! Traditional music also, and reggae. Bob Marley of course, Peter Tosh too, he was a huge favorite of mine.", says Seun. He made this selection for Paris DJs as a snapshot of what he's listening to these days: dancehall, hip hop, afrobeat, reggae, and a Ray Charles classic… Seun Kuti is currently touring Europe to promote his superb second album From Africa with Fury: Rise.
