Fela Kuti 'Confusion' LP

This epic Afrobeat album contains just one eponymous track clocking in at just over 25 minutes in length, beginning with a mysterious psychedelic musical interplay between Fela on organ and Tony Allen on drums. As the song takes on a righteously funky groove Fela evokes the chaos of Lagos - the multitude of regional dialects, the traffic jams, the absence of policemen to take charge - as a metaphor for the larger problems of post-colonial Nigeria.
