Femi Kuti and the Positive Force

Fela Kuti's elder son used to throw down a less politically outspoken and musically more economical version of his late father's Afrobeat, but Femi's more recent lyrics are consistently engaged and enraged, and his best tunes contain nearly as many memorably massive horn riffs and polyrhythmic epiphanies as Fela's side-long workouts. Don't discount the mighty Positive Force band and its gyrating dancers, either.
