On October 15th, in Nigeria, a legend was born. He would become Fela Anikulapo Kuti. FELA LIVES! is a multi-sensory tribute to the Black President, born from the desire to keep advancing his message & music and honoring his musical innovAtion, SociAl consciousness and revolutionary activism. we Seek to connect with Fela's spirit and call him to celebrate with us on a dancefloor charged with energy!
Wunmi aka Wunmigirl is a cross between Afrobeat Legend Fela Anikulapo Kuti & dance music icon Grace Jones. Her bass heavy, uplifting funky Afro-beat transforms any venue into a sacred temple of good vibes. Wunmi's explosive energy, hi-octane dance moves and her super-tight band "Slow Commotion" drives her audience to approach the fractured world with new insight even as they shake their thang to dance floor bliss. She has rocked crowds from Summer stage in Sapporo- Japan, Zenith in Paris to Rabat (Morocco), Lily World/Big Day Out (Australia/NZ) to Accra Afrobitten in Ghana.She is an irresistible super-hero of love, fighting spirit, and joy.
