Dele Sosimi

Dele Sosimi and members of his Afrobeat Orchestra perform and celebrate some of Fela Kuti’s considerable songbook, joined by students of the School of Music at Cardiff University.

Felabration Caerdydd | Cardiff 2022 brings Dele Sosimi and members of his Afrobeat Orchestra to Chapter to perform some of Fela Kuti’s considerable Afrobeat songbook. They will be joined by students of the School of Music at Cardiff University, following a workshop led by Dele.

Felabration is a worldwide festival celebrating the life of Nigeria’s foremost musical icon, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, during the month of his birth. Dele Sosimi was in the Shrine with Fela, and continues to be the leading educator/ambassador for the Afrobeat genre in the United Kingdom.

Music is a spiritual thing. You don’t play music. If you play with music you will die young. When the higher forces give you gift of musicianship, it must be well used for the good of humanity’. Fela Kuti 1938 – 1997
