  • Femi Kuti's music is a potent blend of styles that can truly be described as "world music." Drawing on musical phrasings from his African heritage and fusing them with frantic beats drawn from traditional American R&B, Femi follows in his father's (Fela Anikulapo-Kuti) footsteps to further push the Afro-Beat genre forward. LIVE AT THE SHRINE is a joyous way to witness Femi and his band, Positive Force, perform, as they lay down their infectious grooves before a jubilant hometown crowd in Lagos, Nigeria. As well as the 14 live tracks, interviews with Femi describe how he built The Shrine in memory to his late father, and scenes from the streets of Lagos give a flavor of the hardships and abundant spirit of the people who live there. Shot in 2004, the multi-talented Femi weaves his way between sax, keyboards, and vocal duties, while his impressive band conjures up a potent brew of styles behind him. Among the tracks are "1997," a cover of his father's "Water No Get Enemy," and many others.
