Jump N Funk – Drom NYC:

Starting life as a small New York event aimed at raising awareness for Fela
Kuti's musical message, Rich Medina's Jump N Funk party has now been
rocking dancefloors across the globe for over 15 years. Honouring Fela's
contribution to music as well as his political and cultural legacy, Medina has
made his events a platform to celebrate Afro-Life across the Black Diaspora.
With guests such as Wunmi, the cast of Fela! On Broadway, Asiko and
Antibalas providing captivating live performances, Jump N Funk is so much
more than a club night. In creating this compilation to represent the spirit of his
events, Rich Medina has chosen an eclectic selection of undeniably afro-tinged,
unashamedly life-affirming music. With most tracks either referencing, sampling
or inspired by the great man, the record also includes material by Fela himself,
as well as son Seun Kuti and long-time band member Tony Allen the inventor of
the afrobeat set drum syncopation that is equally as notorious as Fela and his
message... The album's artwork has been lovingly created by Lemi Ghariokwu,
the fabled Nigerian artist who designed some of Fela's most iconic covers. From
the record's sleeve to the music contained within, Jump N Funk is a cultural
artefact with one foot in the past, the other in the future. An echo of Fela's
message: a reminder to celebrate, to empower, to progress.

• Cover art by Fela Kuti's illustrator Lemi Ghariokwu
• Full press & radio campaign in key territories
• Rich Medina's Jump n Funk movement is responsible for the renewed interest stateside in Fela's legacy
• Music included within from Fela himself, his son Seun & drummer Tony Allen
