Fela Kuti Na Poi on LP

Almost two decades after his death, vindication has come to Fela Kuti, Africa's musical genius. AfroBeat, his gift to the world, is now an international staple on his own uncompromising terms, social content intact. Throughout his life, Fela contended that AfroBeat was a modern form of danceable, African classical music with an urgent message for the planet's denizens. Created out of a cross-breeding of Funk, Jazz, Salsa and Calypso with Juju, Highlife and African percussive patterns, it was to him a political weapon.

Na Poi, originally released in 1972, was re-released in 1976. Another version was included on 1976's Yellow Fever. The title track was hugely controversial and was banned by the Nigerian Broadcasting Company upon its original release. In Yoruba, the expression literally means "things will collide," and in the lyric Fela describes a man and a woman's most intimate moments in graphic detail.
