The series will kick off with a night that is a distinctive compliment to the gift of Nigerian Activist, Political maverick & God-Father of Afro-Beat Fela Anikulapo Kuti. We will be screening the definitive documentary “Fela: Music Is the Weapon” as an introduction to Fela’s dogmatic ideas, political movement & immense contribution to African Music,

This will be followed by a special show by Sydney own Afro-Beat power-house collective The Liberators and closing the night will be Soul of Sydney DJ’s with a rare Afro-Beat, Afro-Funk tribute homage to the likes of Fela Kuti (of course), Tony Allen, Hugh Masekela, Antibalas, TV On The Radio, Public Opinion Afro Orchestra, Kola Ogunkoya, Sonny Okosun, King Sunny Ade, Ray Lema & Manu Dibango just to name a few.

Tickets are a kick ass $10 at the door for a film, funk gig and an awesome line up of djs.
