Episode: Seun Kuti performs "Rise"
"Rise" is the title song on Seun Kuti and Egypt 80's new album. In the Fela tradition of Afrobeat, it's an angry song - protesting against corrupt leaders and corporations exploiting Africa's resources. It's also a big band tour de force, with echoes of James Brown and Miles Davis. Above all, it's a call to rise against injustice.
