About FELA ON VINYL:

Founded in 2016 by deejay/music researcher Juan G, Fela On Vinyl has brought the worldwide Felabration festivities straight to Oakland. It started as an unassuming one-off vinyl night at a local bar and graduated into the premier annual showcase of Fela Kuti's musical legacy in the bay area. This event is intentionally intimate, welcoming all walks of life to come together and hear the music and - more importantly - the message of one of Africa's greatest musicians. All of the music heard throughout the night will be played on original vinyl pressings - pops, clicks and all - to highlight the warm tones and frequencies that Fela originally intended for his audience.

We hope to see you there.
