The eldest son of famed Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti, Femi grew up in Lagos, Nigeria and joined his father’s band while still a teenager. In the ’80s, he started his own band, the Positive Force, drawing inspiration from big band funk and jazz. Chicago rapper ProbCause, who has collaborated with fellow native sons such as Chance the Rapper and Vic Mensa, opens up the show. This free concert is part of the 2016 Millennium Park Summer Music Series.
