Lab Overview

"Shakara is the sixth in the series of celebratory Fela Kuti 50th Anniversary reissues. Like its predecessors in the series, this version is pressed on color vinyl and wrapped in a gold foil obi strip with a brief essay on the album and Fela’s global impact on music. Like Fela’s other early 70's releases, he used each side of his LPs to create a deep groove that pulls the listener in and follows with metaphoric lyrics that call out and critique the corrupt hangover of colonialism. This special edition also includes a bonus 7" of the two album tracks, Lady and Shakara, remixed by Ezra Collective. One of the most important bands in the UK at the moment, Ezra Collective is pioneering a new sound that hails from UK grime, hip hop, Afrobeat, and jazz." - Knitting Factory Records
