Fela: Kalakuta Notes (Second Edition)
by John Collins
Wesleyan University Press (2015), 326 pages

 

Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, arguably Africa’s greatest musician, has a place in the pantheon of African thought leaders of the 20th century, along with the likes of Frantz Fanon, Marcus Garvey and Nelson Mandela. Eighteen years after his death, his life continues to be a focus of intellectual discussion, his music remains an edifying staple, and every few years a new book about his life surfaces.
