Seun Kuti, the youngest son of Afrobeat founder Fela Kuti, brings his father’s 16-piece funk fuelled orchestra, Egypt 80 and the spirit and beats of Africa to Brighton Dome. 

Hailed for continuing Fela’s musical legacy, Seun Kuti took control of his father’s band Egypt 80 at the age of 14 and has been laying down a potent version of those indestructible rhythms ever since. A number of the current members of the Egypt 80 line-up not only played with Fela, but were participants in Nigeria’s political and social uprising in the early 1980s alongside him.
