The new Broadway show Fela will open its gates on November 23rd, 2009 and Fela tickets have been selling to curious audiences ever since. This musical play is based on the real life story of Fela Anikulapo Kuti, a revolutionary music composer and a political activist. His work may not be a very famous household name in America but his music was a hit in London nightclubs. He was a legendary African singer and had a unique style of music. His music was a mix of jazz, harmonies, traditional African and Yoruba rhythms. Hence, his music was known as Afro beat music. In fact, Fela was the creator of this new form of music, which made waves in the 1960’s. His life was no less than a book of fiction. With several twists and turns and ups and downs, he made news all over the world. He is remembered after so many decades and this Broadway play will portray his life.

He learned music composition and joined classes for trumpet. His music was unique and caught attention of the audiences. Soon he developed his band in 1961 and was a huge success in London. He now started touring all over the world for staging his music shows. Fela came across a life changing experience when he learned about Malcolm X, who worked on Black Nationalism. The journey was different thereon. Music remained a very important aspect in his life but it was now used to inspire people and to bring a change. His political stint started with his fight against oppression and the military and the African government. He even stood for presidential elections but was a failure. Not just that, his political activism got him arrested more than 200 times. His band went through a complete revamp and his music was not just for entertainment. It was now bringing people together and inspiring a revolution. He is popularly known as a revolutionary musician. Feal died of AIDS but will be remembered for his work of art and politics.
