Roy Ayers, Seun Kuti & Egypt 80 USA/Nigeria
Roy Ayers, Seun Kuti & Egypt 80
A heartfelt tribute to Music Of Many Colours and Fela Kuti's memory.
Back in 1979, the American jazz/funk/soul pioneer and vibraphone player Roy Ayers toured Nigeria for six weeks with the late, great Afrobeat inventor Fela Kuti.
The collaboration worked so well that the pair went into the studio with Fela’s band Africa ’70/Egypt ’80 and recorded the album Music of Many Colours.
Fast forward to 2017, leadership of Fella’s band Egypt 80 has passed to his son Seun Kuti, who has teamed up with the veteran Ayers, now 76, to stage a heartfelt tribute to Music Of Many Colours and Fela’s memory.http://www.royayers.net
