~ 25 yrs ago I caught Fela Kuti show live in Chicago 2 times. Quite an incredible show. The stage was empty to start with. 1st, drummers would come out, then dancers, than more musicians would appear. In 20 minutes time ~30 musicians were on stage playing until 3 AM. It was great. Fela moved from L to R on stage with cig in one hand and mic in other. He was like a black Frank Sinatra. Quite a visual presentation. This kind of music was new to me. They quit ~3AM due to city noise ordinance. Otherwise they would have kept playing.
