Seun Kuti: 'A Long Way to the Beginning'

He’s the youngest son and musical heir of legendary Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti. Seun Kuti joins Jade Barker in the studio to talk about how his father inspired him to learn the saxophone, why music is a mirror of society and how his latest album with his band Egypt 80, "A Long Way to the Beginning", stays true to his Afrobeat roots.

Also on the show, we tell you how some African musicians are raising funds for war-torn Central African Republic. Their aim is to highlight the country’s cultural similarities through music to help overcome the sectarian clashes.

And if you want to learn how to salsa or about the rise of hip-hop in the Bronx, get yourself down to an exhibition here in Paris called “Great Black Music”. If you can’t make it to the French capital, we’ll give you a sneak peak.
