It’s Fela's birthday on October 15th, and parties celebrating the Nigerian revolutionary and master of afrobeat are popping up across the country. With at least 12 Felabrations in the US alone (and more across Europe and Africa), it’s clear that the Fela Kuti revivalis here to stay! Find a Felabration near you:
