On “Black Times,” Afrobeat Artist Seun Kuti Extends His Father’s Legacy | Bandcamp Daily
Seun’s music, especially Black Times, is less outwardly politically defiant than his father’s. It’s more of a call-to-arms for the children of Nigeria to mobilize and take back a world stacked against them. On the album’s title track (which features Carlos Santana), the band sings, “Are you ready to rise? To be free?” It’s the sort of powerfully simple statement that lit a fire under Fela’s generation, and is poised to do the same for Seun’s.
