When Fela Kuti came to New York City

The Fela revival–lawsuits and all–in New York City rolls on. This time it’s a new documentary about a mid-1980s visit Kuti–then in his prime–made to New York City.  “Fela–NYC: Fresh from Africa”  is a 97-minute film directed by Jaheed Ashley “… filled with rare footage of Fela that remained unseen for two decades.” I just got a notice about a screening on December 4, 2o1o at Riverside in Harlem by the African Diaspora Film Festival.
