Bandshell

Femi Kuti + Bombino

, 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm, 2016
11225, NY, Brooklyn

Femi Kuti performs at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented in partnership with the Prospect Park Alliance. For the latest information, including weather updates, set times, seating configurations, and FAQs, please visit the BRIC website.

Femi Kuti, eldest son of Nigerian Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti, began his career playing in his father’s band Egypt 80 but founded his own group Positive Force in 1986 and has never looked back. Though he has forged his own path and become a world music icon in his own right, “the baton is definitely in his hands.” (Questlove) He’s here with the Tuareg guitar wizard Bombino, “whose pyrotechnic virtuosity in expressing tichumaren (desert blues) has been compared to that of Jimi Hendrix.” (NPR)

Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine.
