Video: Femi Kuti’s Take Away Show



Femi Kuti is pacing like a crazy man on a Parisian rootop. It looks freezing, his band of brass and hand drum players in mostly matching orange puffy coats. Then he stops, chops his hands back and forth like a wild composer, basically screaming. "Africa for Africa" is an anthem. "Day by Day," the Take Away Show's excerpt (after the jump), is more of a folk song even the backup dancers singing. No doubt what family this dude comes from, even if he sounds just pissed and less ready to party.
