Fela Kuti & Roy Ayers - Music of Many Colours (2019)


Unit price per
Knitting Factory Records is proud to reissue Music Of Many Colours on vinyl. This is the first pressing of the album since the late 80’s. 
Music of Many Colours is a joint album between Roy Ayers and Fela Kuti, recorded after a three week tour of Nigeria's major cities in 1979, during which Ayers performed as the opening act for Fela's band.
 
The two artists decided to record the album as a round-up to the tour. Ayers describes the experience saying, "I met Fela Kuti in Nigeria in 1979, and we fell into a great relationship, good personal and music vibes, and we recorded that album together. Fela also came to USA in the eighties and we performed at NYC's Madison Square Garden. Amazingly energetic, Fela Kuti had a very original concept that was called Afro Beat – a genre with a very unique identity and exceptional music. One of Fela Kuti's most impressive qualities was that he was undeniably a brilliant show man, as a musician and as a huge dancer as well. His African concept was truly original...The tour was about two black men together coming together, one from Africa and other from USA, a very exciting collaboration."
