Zombie: The Resurrection of Fela Kuti
October 7, 2010 through January 2, 2011
Opening Reception: October 7, 2010, 6-9 PM

...This exhibition will resurrect and celebrate the spirit of a composer, activist, pioneer, revolutionary... Fela Kuti. Born Olu-Fela Anikulapo Kuti on October 15, 1938 in Abeokuta, Nigeria. Fela was one of Africa's most controversial musicians and throughout his life he continued to fight for the rights of the common man (and woman) despite vilification, harassment, and even imprisonment by the government of Nigeria. He formed his first group Koola Lobitos in 1963. The large jazz, funk, and afrobeat collective underwent many changes in the following decades but the style remained the same thanks to Fela's vision and other key members such as drummer Tony Allen.
