The Music of Fela in Concert : Out of Africa

One variety of world music DVD not to be missed is the provocative work of Fela. From Nigeria and known as a revolutionary figure in African music and politics, Fela Anikulapo Kuti blends the Western influences of some jazz greats with indigenous African sounds to create what is commonly referred to as Afro-Pop.

Fela creates music that is not only stimulating to the ears and transfixing when seen live, but also profoundly political and indicative of the African society throughout the course of the past several decades. His influence broadened far beyond the details of his music.

Filmed at an all-night concert in Paris, this concert DVD, "Fela In Concert" is more than just a celebration of music on DVD; it is moving experience of the life and experiences of this African musician and political activist. Loaded with Bonus Features, such as a biography of Fela and scene selections, this unique video will present a fine addition to your selections of music from across the globe. A stellar World Music DVD.

Another multiple Award Winning world music dvd, shown on PBS, that is a must-own is "Cuba Mia: Portrait of an All Woman Orchestra," a behind the scenes intimate look at Cuba today and these talented women who form the Camarata Romeu Orchestra, a world renowned chamber orchestra from Cuba.

Other world music dvds include "Latin Nights," "Tanya Maria: The Beat of Brazil" from the highly acclaimed Ad Lib Series from the Arkadia DVD label, and "Antonio Carlos Jobim: An All Star Tribute," featuring Shirley Horn, Herbie Hancock, Jon Hendricks, Gal Costa, Gonzalo Rubalcaba and the last music on DVD performance by Jobim himself.
