Track: Beng beng beng
Artist: Femi Kuti
Music: Nigerian Afro-beat
Chosen by: Hester Dunlop (Huddersfield)


Listen  Listen to a clip from 'Beng beng beng', album: 'Shoki Shoki' (Polygram, UK)

I've loved the music of Fela Kuti for longer than I care to remember, so when I heard this, by his son, it was like a revival and a new take on rhythms and melodies that were close to my heart.

I'm involved with a not-for-profit DJ'd dance event held every fortnight in Huddersfield called Loose Feet where we play a wide range of global dance music to an expanding audience. Whether I'm DJ-ing or dancing this always gets me moving and takes me somewhere else.
