Description by OLDIES.com:

This extraordinary program features the most famous Nigerian musician and composer, Fela Anikulapo Luti. Fela was the most celebrated black African musician of his time and a revolutionary, a cultural and political symbol oftentimes ambiguous to the Western mind. The African rhythms of his music are profoundly influenced by Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Miles Davis as well as Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Burning Spear, forming a new musical style called "Afro-Pop," somewhat akin to "Jazz-Rock," but with deep African roots.

Product Description:

With over twenty instrumentalists and six vocalists, Fela performs in Paris in a live concert recorded in June of 1981.
