The Africans are coming… The Africans are coming…

After a widely successful debut of African-inspired high fashion at New York Fall Fashion Week, the African-inspired lifestyle trend continues to gather steam.  Fela, the most critically acclaimed new musical, has received 11 Tony nominations, including Best Musical. This electrifying and touching show tells the story of Fela Kuti, the legendary Nigerian musician whose stirring Afrobeat rhythms ignited a generation. Inspired by his mother, a civil rights champion, he defied a corrupt and oppressive Nigerian military government and devoted his life and music to the struggle for freedom and human dignity.

Fela the paly is a triumphant tale of courage, passion, and love, featuring music and the visionary direction and choreography of Tony-award winner Bill T. Jones.
