October 15 marks the birth of Fela Anikulapo Kuti. I’m DJing two events that will celebrate the musical legacy of the innovator of Afrobeat. The first is Sonic Diaspora at Patty Boom Boom in Washington, DC (1359 U St, NW)! I’ll be playing dope dance music from all over the African World and will dedicate some set time to Fela, other Afrobeat legends, and music that was inspired by Afrobeat. If you’re in DC, you won’t want to miss this. If you’re on Facebook, check the Sonic Diaspora and Brotha Onaci pages for details.
Back in Philly the next day, We’ll be doing Felabration at Walnut Room with Funk Sect Records! I’m happy to be holding down the decks alongside DJ Vanessa Beck, Punchuashen, and DJ Nikko. There will also be several great live performances! Check the event page for more details.
