  Carlos Moore Fela Kuti Bio  

BOOK SIGNING TOUR

FELA: This Bitch of A Life
The Authorized Biography of
Africa’s Musical Genius

“Fela was an incredible pioneer. His rhythms and influence have been absorbed into so much of the music around today, and the musical world owes him a debt of gratitude.” STEVIE WONDER

“The most influential and significant musician ever to emerge from Africa.”   TIME MAGAZINE

“An amazing musical genius with a boisterous sense of humor. Fela was an immovable rock in his fight against corruption. Surviving several immoral military regimes, it is a miracle that he died from natural causes rather than their torture.” HUGH MASEKELA

"Fela's biography is important to us all now because it sounds like he is speaking to us from the world beyond." FEMI KUTI
