FELA KUTI / LADY
Fela Kuti is one of my favorite Afro Jazz/Funk Musicians, who was the inspiration behind The Shrine club/bar/venue in Harlem, and the Broadway Musical FELA! I have many a memory of my Dad playing this and my sister and I bugging out, shouting “She Go Say I Be Lady OH”. This music is the materialization of my Dad who is the Proudest African/Ghanaian Man out there, but he is also a Proud Black man who loves Miles Davis, Jimmy Smith, Roberta Flack, Nina Simone while also loving Judas Priest new Album Nostradamus, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Carlos Santana and even Radiohead which boggled my mind a bit lol. My Dad Cornelius Stephen Sackey was a Musical Hipster before I was born and I have inherited such a diverse ear for music so I thank you dad! This tribute is for you!
