[music] Seun Kuti - Think Afrika

"Seun Kuti is the new heir to the Afro-beat throne. His father was legendary rebel, leader, poet, and musician Fela Kuti. Seun is Fela's youngest son and is joined on this track from his debut by his father's band, Egypt 80. It's a band that Seun began playing with at age 9, so it's no surprise how adept he is at laying down his socially-minded lyrics over the group's call-and-response funk. If you're a stranger to the Afro-beat style laid out by Fela, there is a rich world of deep music awaiting you and this cut, with its hypnotic, brassy rhythms and solid groove, shows that the form is alive and well." -- iTunes Store
