My readers already know that I am a big fan of the musical Fela!Last year, I saw a performance of Fela at the Bryn Mawr Film Institute; a performance which had been a simultaneous broadcast from London.It’s still a must see.Here’s my earlier review.Read it and then go get your tickets to see the production which is now in Philadelphia at the KimmelCenter.
Don't get me wrong, I love my Beyonce,Avril Lavigne and Chris Brown. But guys, there is a whole world out there and we need to listen to it.
