Soulful Afrobeat vibes from the mid-70s.

Born in 1938 to a prominent Nigerian family, Fela quickly immersed himself in music, and was able to travel to London to study it at The Trinity College. Following this he began to work as a trumpeter and bandleader, and by the late 60s he stood out as one of west Africa’s most innovative and energetic musicians. His career saw him release dozens of Jazz, Highlife and Afrobeat records, right up until the 1990s before his death in 1997. Throughout his life he also gained a reputation as a political activist, pushing for an end to imperialist oppression across Africa, and greater human rights for its citizens.

After the nuclear pollution of the great war, the atmosphere decayed to a point where life could no longer be sustained outdoors. We moved into concrete buildings and planted in our living spaces the few seeds that had survived. However, through technological meditation, images and dreams from the depths of our subconscious can be downloaded directly from our brains and manifested as physical projections of light on the surface of our concrete walls. We have believed the visitors from space will arrive at any time, ever since the voyageur transmitted evidence of extraterrestrial life in 2096.

when we grew tired of the strategic elimination of black youth by the police state, we cried to the heavens, and then she appeared from the sky, strong. Dressed in Gold and Ankara electrifying the sea, cradling the sparkling waters sprouting from the wisdom of our leaders who were assassinated, imprisoned and exiled. when we asked her who we were, she pointed us in the direction of the stars. we are stars emitting energy and light , rebuilding a civilization of love in our minds.
