Femi Kuti is going on the road to support is new album, Day by Day, which drops on Tuesday. I haven’t had a chance to hear the album, which his people describe as “a hybrid of Afro-pop, jazz and urban influences.” While he jury is still out on this, I will probably be in the front row for this one. I’ve made it a vow not to miss an Afrobeat show and I have to stand true to my convictions.
Femi plays Webster Hall in NYC twice, and swings through DC on January 9th for a 9:30 club appearance. (via Brooklyn Vegan)
