JOHANNESBURG: Femi Koya, “the real Makoya”, widely known for his embrace of indigenous sounds, will stop at nothing to celebrate African music. The Nigerian born South African Saxophonist and Singer with an agenda to unite and bring people together with his music will be celebrating the life of Afrobeat Legend Fela Kuti, who needs no introduction.
Fela’s birthday is 15th October 1938.
Felacantation – A celebration of Fela Kuti’s Legacy. After being inspired by the music of the Legend, Femi Koya will “incantate” the music spirit of Fela Kuti at the Felacantation with classics of Fela’s music from Palava to Mr Follow Follow, Water, Shakara, Zombie, Colomentality,Teacher, Lady and Femi Koya’s composed music.
Felacantation despises sluggishness, and so does the music that comes from Femi Koya’s Afrobeat band. The nine-piece outfit considered so hot you can’t touch them but you can feel them and they will make you happy. They will bring down the house with their brass bonanza
Femi sees himself as part of a new Africa on the move; where home is not just one place but a multiplicity of places and influences. Four albums to his collar,Femi has performed and worked with Baba Maal, Angelique Kidjo, Yvonne ChakaChaka, Sipho Mabuse, Pops Mohamed, Wizkid and Simphiwe Dana among others. He has also shared a stage with Salif Keita, King Sunny Ade ,Youssou N’dou, Sibongile Khumalo, and Habib Keita.
