Giveaway: Win the FELA! Original Broadway Cast Recording

January 18, 2013

It’s giveaway time!  Today, you can win the Original Broadway Cast Recording of FELA!

This is your chance to hear music from the most critically acclaimed musical of the 2010 Broadway season! FELA!, a spectacularly inspiring and triumphant tale of courage, passion and love, was nominated for eleven Tony Awards and won three, including Best Choreography, Best Costumes and Best Sound. Directed and choreographed by legendary Tony Award Winner Bill T. Jones.

Did you hear?  Michelle Williams, of Destiny’s Child, has joined the touring cast and will be performing Feb. 25-26!

FELA! features the captivating sounds of Fela Kuti, on whose life the show is based. Fela Kuti created Afrobeat—a blend of jazz, funk and African rhythm and harmonies—and mixed these sensual eclectic rhythms with simple but powerful lyrics that openly assailed Nigeria’s corrupt and oppressive dictatorships.

The internationally touring production features Fela Kuti’s most captivating songs performed by a combined cast of the original Broadway production and the Royal National Theatre production all under Bill T. Jones’s visionary staging. FELA! reveals Kuti’s life as an artist and human rights activist and celebrates his pioneering music in what has been hailed as one of the most exciting, exhilarating and vital stage experiences in recent memory.
