Calabar



Western music is Bach, Handel and Schubert - it's good music, cleverly done - as a musician I can see that. Classical music gives musicians a kick. But African music gives everyone a kick. Once you get music with a beat, that is African music.
Jazz was the beginning of rhythm music, which developed into rock and roll. But what the jazz musicians lost because they were so far from their homeland was the intricate rhythms of African music.



Primal e moderno, libertário e ditador, ídolo popular e anti-herói político, estudante de teoria musical em conservatório britânico e criador do termo (e do som do) Afrobeat, bruto e sensual, Fela Kuti era poderoso. No vídeo, a afrorquestra Africa 70 tocando, as garotas dançando, Fela cantando como se não houvesse amanhã, em 1971. As aspas do Fela, mapa do ritmo e som africano, desse ensaio, do Guardian.
