A veteran of the Afrobeat movement, Femi Kuti has been a crusader of the genre since the release of his first album No Cause For Alarm? (1989). For more than 30 years, this London-born Nigerian has celebrated the beauty of Africa through jazz, funk and highlife sounds arranged around brass and percussion instruments. Accompanied by an outfit of singers and musicians, Femi Kuti has graced many stages around the world and is performing at the festival for the third time, having given memorable shows for fans of worldbeat music at the FEQ in 2013 and 2018. The album One People One World (2018) perfectly showcases Kuti’s vision of uniting people through music that transcends borders. The good vibes are food for the soul, and there is little doubt the contagious energy of Femi Kuti & The Positive Force will be a colourful and lively experience.
