Fela Friday: FELA! Edition

Share this

FELA! I love this because that’s exactly how I say his name. All caps, exclamation point. The musical has already gotten lots of rave reviews, but I remained skeptical until I saw this:

And now, not only am I excited to see the musical, but I’m pretty sure there should be an exercise class based solely on Fela’s music. Check out Colbert’s interview with choreographer Bill T. Jones as well.
