Fela Kuti Sorrow Tears and Blood (Edit)
It’s multi week after the Lekki Massacre (20-210-20, the killings of quiet Nigerian Youths/Protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate) and to consume our candles for the falling saints, enthusiastic Nigerians we delivered this Fela show-stopper – ‘Sorrow Tears and Blood’ which contains amazing message about the sorrowful occurrence.
Regularly thought to be enlivened by the February 1977 armed force assault on Kalakuta Republic, as indicated by sleeve fashioner Ghariokwu Lemi, “Sorrow Tears And Blood” was written in light of the South African system’s devastating of the Soweto uprising in June 1976, which Lemi and Fela had viewed unfurl on TV.
The collection was among the first of those Fela delivered following the decimation of Kalakuta Republic. An early sleeve configuration utilized a photo indicating Fela in front of an audience in the repercussions of the shock, his left leg still in mortar. He devoted the collection “to the memory of the individuals who were beaten, assaulted, tormented or harmed” during the Kalakuta assault. The police and armed force constantly desert them “sorrow, tears and blood,” Fela sings, and the support performers react, “dem ordinary brand name.” Decca would not deliver the collection, dreading government responses. Fela reacted by establishing up Kalakuta Precedents and making the circle the mark’s introduction discharge.
Tune in to the short Edited “Sorrow Tears And Blood” record underneath as we keep on battling for Liberty and a New Nigeria.
