Suen Kuti & Egypt 80 perform at Helsinki Hudson in Hudson, NY at 9 pm on Friday, September 5 to deliver Afrobeat music.

With Egypt 80, Seun Kuti carries on the legacy of his father, the late Fela Anikulapo Kuti, whose name was nearly synonymous with "Afrobeat," by combining swirling African rhythms and gritty textures with horn-laced funk in songs laced with social and political messages.

Musician Kuti carries a 15-piece band that includes a four-member horn section (plus Kuti himself on saxophone), two backup vocalists/dancers, four percussionists, and a full rock band including two electric guitarists playing the incessant rhythms and circular, twisted single-note lines and riffs that came to characterize and define Afrobeat music.



Ticket price the day of the show for General Admission is $30. Please call Helskinki Hudson to make Reservations For Tables.
