FELA ANIKULAPO KUTI & ROY AYERS
By the beginning of the eighties, Fela Anikulapo Kuti and Roy Ayers had already reached the peaks of their careers. Ayers found his style by migrating from Jazz's strict discipline to his unmistakable blend of jazz, soul and funk while Kuti created a new musical genre : Afro-Beat by updating African music's sound with American funkinfluences. Music fans must have frantically anticipated the coming together of the two maestros on this "Music of Many Colours" that features the co-produced "2000, blacks got to be free" and "Africa-Centre Of The World". The music is dashingly brillant : Fela's afro centrist groove completely rejuvenates Ayers' take on American Soul and R&B. You can't help being taken over by the vindicative tone and musical tornado of this LP.
