Revisiting the Big Fela

Nigerian Afrobeat legend and activist Fela Kuti, who died of AIDS in 1997, was a genius at crafting politically charged songs that even the most milquetoast of the Western world would find pleasant, despite the fact that the message was often a critique of this cross-section of people who lived at the expense of others. Essentially, Kuti’s blend of jazz, funk, Yoruba folk music, polyrhythmic percussion, and catchy call-and-response chants is an infectious and brilliant means for delivering his political message. On RED HOT + FELA, its second record dedicated to Kuti, the Red Hot Organization, responsible for more than twenty years of important compilations to fund AIDS awareness, offers up a dependable, eclectic array of talent who offer their own sometimes faithful and often interpretive renditions of some of Kuti’s most important works.

The aging folk legend has certainly seen better days, but with two accomplished, contemporary groups in tow, the AmericanaramA tour will offer enough enough bang for your buck that you should be able to overlook Dylan’s raspy growl. The caravan rolls through Chicago on July 12 and may be the only hometown Wilco show of the year.

This round of shows will be the first time James will be playing without the rest of his bandmates in My Morning Jacket. He plays his very first at Johnny Brenda’s. If you didn’t act quick, you’re out of lucky as the concert is already sold out! So good luck hunting down tickets on Stubhub and Craigslist. It’s also pretty safe to assume that Jim James will be announcing some sort of a nationwide tour at some point this year so you can always wait for that as well.
