Australian Afrobeat (Pt.IV): Big Fela


BIG FELA have been pumping out the afrobeat hits of Fela Kuti, plus their own choice cuts in the style, since 2004. Led by Phil Bywater's fiery saxophone and vocals, the lineup includes past and present members of Bomba, Labjacd, The Royal Swazi Spa, Oxo Cubans and Des Peres. We have been fortunate to collaborate with many of Australia's finest African musicians,including King Marong (St Kilda Global Garden Festival), Kojo Awusu, Joe Malatji and Lamine Sonko, and to perform at festivals from St Kilda to Mornington, Federation Square to Fitzroy!
