femi kuti//the new afrika shrine


went to see femi kuti @ the new afrika shrine on valentine's weekend. the band, including femi's son, played a good hour before he joined them on stage, at which point his son promptly left and they all got really serious.

it'd been ages since the last time i saw him perform, and he seemed so much older and sterner than i remembered. they say jazz musicians' brains are a lot like those of mathematicians, with intricate and complex neural pathways corresponding to the many keys and chord progressions they have to memorize. looking at him perform, the frenzied way he conducted and paced on stage, i could only imagine what must be going on in that mind of his.

here's a little clip of the performance. enjoy! --AL.
