Live from Felabration 2010

FELABRATION is the annual festival dedicated to the promotion of Afrobeat and African culture and to the preservation of the legend and artistry of Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.

On the 10th - 17th October, 2010, the New Afrika Shrine, Lagos, Nigeria, played host to Afrobeat and music lovers from all over the world, as they came to pay tribute to the late Fela and also to celebrate the incredible artform which is his legacy.

TARIERE was present at the Shrine on Thursday 14th, and I bring you great moments and sights from what has now become the biggest and most relevant Music Festival in Africa!!

The stage was set for ALL that was going to go down on it...

Sometimes, you couldn't exactly see what was happening on stage...

Great performances ALL evening...and through the entire Festival!!
