Femi Kuti & Mos Def – Do Your Best

21 Mar

If you don’t know who Femi Kuti is, then you’re missing out on one of the still living legends from the 70s music era. Femi Kuti is a Nigerian musician who has been making Afrobeat music since the late 70s. Afrobeat is a mixture of funk, jazz, African drumming, and chanting vocals, originating in Nigeria.

“Do Your Best” is one of my favorite songs by Femi because it has so many elements of music in it – singing, rapping by hip-hop legend Mos Def, various percussion drumming, brass sections, and jamming. The combination of all of these with the massive talent of Femi Kuti makes this song what it is. After seeing a live performance of Femi Kuti, I have become to appreciate this unique, almost tribal experience they have on stage. Check him out!
