Description

Sponsored by Michigan Chronicle and the United Auto Workers (UAW), a portion of the proceeds from Music Hall's opening-weekend performance of the electrifying, Tony-Award winning musical, FELA!, presented by Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter and Will & Jada Pinkett-Smith, will benefit the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History.   Be sure to see the accompanying exhibit, Moving to His Own Beat - Fela: The Man, The Movement, The Music, now on display at The Wright Museum.

 

His story inspired a nation.  His music inspires the world. FELA! tells the true story of the legendary Nigerian musician Fela Kuti, whose soulful Afrobeat rhythms ignited a generation.  Motivated by his mother, a civil rights champion, he defied a corrupt and oppressive military government and devoted his life and music to the struggle for freedom and human dignity. 


FELA! is a triumphant tale of courage, passion and love, featuring Fela Kuti’s captivating music and the visionary direction and choreography of Tony Award winner Bill T. Jones.
