After a year of non-stop touring and festival performances, The Strides expand their group for an electrifying show of Afrobeat as they pay homage to the legendary Fela Kuti. Come and witness this worldwide resurgence in Fela’s music – from the streets of Lagos, to the new broadway hit ‘Fela’, and now to Sydney’s Global Rhythms Festival. Prepare to hit the dancefloor in what will be one of the year’s most unforgettable nights!
The Strides and Special Guests pay homage to the father of Afrobeat, the Nigerian singer, saxophonist and political activist, Fela Kuti. With his infectious mix of african dance music and James Brown style funk, the music will have you dancing from the first down beat.
