The premiere interview for "Arts and Activism on the Air" focuses on "When Fela Came to Brooklyn!" In 1990, the International African Arts Festival (formerly known as the African Street Festival) bought Afrobeat musical giant FELA ANIKULAPO KUTI to perform on its main stage. The Festival's Co-Founder and Artistic Director at the time, K. MENSAH WALI, says there was JOY JOY JOY, as well as BLUES BLUES BLUES! While "FELA on Broadway" is perhaps the most loved musical of the day, take a moment to tune in to our EXCLUSIVE interview with one of Fela's concert producers. Call in and tell a friend!
