FELA! is the story of legendary Nigerian musician Fela Kuti, whose soulful Afrobeat rhythms ignited a generation.
Inspired by his mother, a civil rights champion, he defied a corrupt and oppressive military government and devoted his life and music to the struggle for freedom and human dignity.
Grammy winner and former member of Destiny's Child, Michelle Williams, is in town to perform in the run of the musical FELA! at Proctor’s in Schenectady tonight and for two shows tomorrow.
