2019 has been extremely intense for Femi Kuti, playing on the world's most exciting and prestigious stages and festivals, while being involved in many recording projects and being deeply engaged in an activism that aims to promise more justice and a better planet for future generations.
Traveling the world with his old rusted saxophone, we could watch Femi perform live from Cairo’s stadium in front of millions of viewers singing the official song of the African Cup of Nations during the opening ceremony, we could hear him in Johannesburg, programmed alongside Jay-Z, Beyoncé and Ed Sheeran at the Global Citizen Festival "Mandela 100" or see his name next to other heavyweights from the new Nigerian scene such as Wizkid or Davido.
During his tours, Femi has also sold out famous venues such as London's Royal Festival Hall where his hypnotic, high-energy show continues to push Afrobeat to new heights. One exciting development is that his band The Positive Force has been joined by his talented multi-instrumentalist son Made Kuti, to play bass and perform impressive saxophone solos alongside his dad.
