Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti's youngest son – saxophonist and singer Seun Kuti – was just 15 when he took over the Egypt 80 band after his father's death in 1997. After struggling for a few years Seun Kuti and Egypt 80 are again touring the world, performing at important festivals and major venues. They play Jazz Fest Friday, April 27th.
