Tony Allen

Happy birthday to Tony Allen, born this day in 1940! Here's some footage of him playing with Fela & Afrika 70 in 1971. No idea what song it is, and there are some intrusive voice-overs, but come on, it's footage of Fela Kuti in 1971. With dancers. You have already clicked, right?

Hey, if you like Fela, you may want to see Fela! A New Musical, now playing Off-Broadway. It's the bio of Fela Kuti, with music arrangements by Antibalas, and choreography by Bill T. Jones. You can get $25 tickets if you visit http://www.felaoffbroadway.com/socnet-01.html and use code Social1.

Enjoy!
