We just got tipped on this nice little release from Gummy Soul: Fela Soul! Combine some Fela Kuti with De La Soul and whalla, you get Fela Soul. This 8-track journey that combines afrobeat with hip hop gems, Nigerian instruments, politics, and native tongue. Produced by Amerigo Gazaway for Gummy Soul, it’s 33 minutes of one-of-a-kind music.
“I hope this project will help to bridge the gap between hip-hop and afrobeat, and serve an introduction for hip-hop fans and music fans alike who are unfamiliar with Fela Kuti or De La Soul’s music.” Amerigo Gazaway.
