'Saluting the Black President' is a special event to honour Nigerian icon and Afrobeat originator Fela Kuti and to celebrate the re-packaging and re-release of his entire catalogue on Knitting Factory Records.

The musicians, singers and rappers will offer their interpretations of Fela songs and will collectively contribute to a magical evening, aided and abetted by the musical backdrop provided by the inimitable Dele Sosimi (previously Fela's keyboardist) and his Afrobeat Orchestra.
