内容紹介

Revealing the hidden facts of this African superstar’s complex personality and the truth about his tumultuous existence, this unique biography is based on hours of conversation and close interaction with the legend himself. The full spectrum of Fela's experience is here: the spirits and trances, the paranoia and drugs, the queens (as he called his wives), and always the music. Interviews with 15 queens, providing their personal stories in their own words, contribute to this amazing story of Fela's life and music. As the creator of Afrobeat—the vibrant fusion of jazz, funk, highlife, and Yoruban music—he protested with lyrics that dealt provocatively with everything from sex to politics, always challenging neocolonialism and the ruling elite. Painting him as an advocate of black power, human rights, and pan-Africanism, this book reveals how Fela shocked, disturbed, and inspired the masses.

レビュー

"Africa's most important musical export." --"Africa Music"

"The most charismatic musician to have emerged from Africa in the past 40 years." --"Telegraph"

"An amazing musical genius with a boisterous sense of humor, Fela was an immovable rock in his fight against corruption. Surviving several immoral military regimes, it is a miracle that he died from natural causes rather than their torture." --Hugh Masekela

"[H]e has influenced music in Africa more than anyone else." --"Guardian"

"[T]he most influential and significant musician ever to emerge from Africa." --"Time Out"

"Fela's biography is important to us all now because it sounds like he is speaking to us from the world beyond. It goes with our aphorism which says that 'Fela Lives.' He lives in the minds and hearts of us all who knew and loved him and to whom he imparted so much knowledge and joy. I personally look forward to reading this book once again, as it provides so much understanding into the mind of such a GREAT MAN." --Femi Kuti

"His music was exotic, royal, powerful, and captured the spirit of Mother Africa. He was respected and loved not only for his music but for his intellect and his dedication to African traditions. Fela was one of the most courageous individuals I have ever met." --Randy Weston

"Fela was an incredible pioneer. His rhythms and influence have been absorbed into so much of the music around today, and the musical world owes him a debt of gratitude." --Stevie Wonder
