FELA! Original Broadway Cast Recording Announced

Knitting Factory Records will be release the FELA! Original Broadway Cast Recording on June 8.

The album features Sahr Ngaujah as Fela singing with members of Antibalas. This cast recording was produced by four-time Grammy nominee Robert Sher.

Directed and choreographed by Tony Award winner Bill T. Jones, with arrangements by Aaron Johnson and Jordan McLean, FELA! is a provocative hybrid of concert, dance and musical theatre.

The cast recording captures the electricity and joy that thousands have experienced at the Eugene O'Neill Theater every night since the play opened on November 23, 2009. The record is a document of that experience, yet at the same time is a musical statement in its own right.
