MUSIC: Fela Kuti – “Sorrow Tears and Blood” (Edit)

Fela Kuti – “Sorrow Tears and Blood” (Edit).

It’s one week after the Lekki Massacre (20-210-20, the killings of peaceful Nigerian Youths/Protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate) and to burn our candles for the falling heroes, patriotic Nigerians we brought forth this Fela masterpiece – ‘Sorrow Tears and Blood‘ which contains powerful message about the sorrowful incident.

Often assumed to be inspired by the February 1977 army attack on Kalakuta Republic, according to sleeve designer Ghariokwu Lemi, “SorrowTearsAndBlood” was written in response to the South African regime’s crushing of the Soweto uprising in June 1976, which Lemi and Fela had watched unfold on television.

Listen to the short Edited “SorrowTearsAndBlood” record below as we continue to fight for Liberty and a New Nigeria.
