Fela Kuti – Music Is the Weapon

This documentary provides an in depth examination of the life and music of Fela Kuti before 1982.  Through this story one can see the political and emotional climate of Nigeria during this time. Fela was an outspoken critic of the government and the documentary describes the numerous issues he faced from beatings to imprisonment to his houses being destroyed.  It’s a great documentary even if you’re not much of a fan of Afrobeat.
