Seun Kuti & Egypt 80 Black Times

On his fourth album, Black Times, with his father’s Egypt 80 ensemble, Seun Kuti delivers a smartly distilled primer on the power of Afrobeat. The 35-year-old bandleader and saxophonist is the youngest son of Fela Kuti, the Afrobeat pioneer who started his own Movement of the People party.

Growing up to the world as Fela Kuti’s son will naturally always cast something of a shadow over Seun Kuti’s music, but Black Times comes across as both a respectful reminder of his legacy and a demonstration of Kuti’s own fresh talent. Humble enough to acknowledge his place in a grander lineage, “Last Revolutionary” features Kuti embarking on a metaphysical roll call. “I be Marcus Garvey/I be Kwame Ture/I be Shaka Zulu,” he proudly proclaims, before delivering the knowing kicker: “I be Fela Kuti.”
