Seun Kuti

Gilles is back in the studio for another Saturday afternoon mix up selection, joining the musical dots between soul, hip hop, house, afro, electronica, jazz and beyond, in his own inimitable style.

This week Gilles speaks to Afrobeat artist Seun Kuti about his new album A Long Way To The Beginning; the follow up to 2008's Many Things and 2011's From Africa With Fury: Rise. The pair talk about family life, the pressures of being Fela's youngest child and working with Robert Glasper on this latest offering.
