Acclaimed Afrobeat musician Femi Kuti will release a new album titled One People One World next month. The music video for the album’s title track is now available.
“One People One World” was shot at The Shrine in Nigeria, the dancehall and concert space Femi built as a memorial to his father, Fela Kuti.
On One People One World, Femi combines Afrobeat with reggae, highlife, soul, R&B and other African, Caribbean and African American elements.
Femi recorded most of the album in Lagos, with musicians from Positive Force, and his son, Omorinmade Anikulapo-Kuti. It’s due to be released February 23, 2018 on Knitting Factory Records.
