Fela! Original Broadway Cast Recording Set For Release

Knitting Factory Records is excited to announce the June 8th release of Fela! – Original Broadway Cast Recording. The record documents the magic of the hit Broadway musical that Ben Brantley of the New York Times called "hot (and seriously cool)." He went on to say that "there has never been anything on Broadway like this production," and Elysa Gardner of USA Today called it "this decade’s most exhilirating new Broadway musical." The album will be available for pre-release order on April 20th at www.felaonbroadway.com

Fela! – Original Broadway Cast Recording features the incomparable Sahr Ngaujah as Fela singing with members of the irrepressibly funky Antibalas. A version featuring Kevin Mambo will be available for download and for sale at the theater. All 16 of the Fela compositions that are performed on stage each night, are on the record as are several songs peformed by Funmalayo (Fela’s mother) as played by the Tony-award winning Lilias White, and Sandra Izadore (Fela’s American girlfriend) as played by Saycon Sengbloh. The record was produced by the Grammy-nominated Robert Sher.
