Fela’s ‘Movement Of The People’ MP3 & Events

Fela Kuti was defamed, jailed, and beaten for his refusal to stand down in the face of corrupt and oppressive regimes. He started his own political party, The Movement Of The People, and wrote a corresponding track – a call to action – called “M.O.P. (Movement Of The People) Political Statement Number 1.” If Fela were alive today, he would be proud to watch the people of Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Cote D’Ivoire, and Sudan, among others, who are fighting for their political and personal freedoms. Like him, they are ready to pay a heavy price for their transformative subordination.

Join these Fela “Movement Of The People” (M.O.P.) parties and celebrate the people of the world fighting for their rights. Stand with the people across Africa and the Middle East during this revolutionary Spring and get inspired by Fela’s music!
