Fela's music, and that of his organization inspired musicians across the global village when Afro-Beat was new and novel. In Nigeria, his countrymen knew his music like Americans know Elvis. On foreign shores, a chosen few Westerners could claim to know the extent of Fela's genius. This compilation focuses on the music Fela inspired - whether by fellow Nigerians recording alongside him in the early 70s, neighbors in Ghana, then-modern Colombian cumbia ensembles inspired by the man who injected a new feel into the Yoruban rhythms that formed cumbia's base, Trinidadian steel bands or the select few organizations left that have maintained Fela's fury in the new millennium. The 4x10'' box set is packaged in a hard-bound slip case, including 24 page color booklet with extensive liner notes, photos and annotation.
