FELA! Hits Sadlers Wells on July 20th
Co-produced by Jay-Z, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, FELA! opened on Broadway in 2009 to rave reviews, I missed it when it hit London for a short time earlier this year, but its back for six weeks this summer and I booked my ticket!!. The musical is based on the life of Nigerian Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti, his music and his controversial life.
