Fuse x Fela

New York's finest visual strategist helps to bring the Fela Kuti story to life on Broadway.

Presented by Jay-Z, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett, Fela! is the electric new Broadway show portraying the life and times of Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti, and if nothing else, it looks incredible. The dramatic art for the show was all made by the celebrated NYC Fuse. Known for his work with Mos Def, Lauryn Hill and Q-Tip, Fuse’s original styles are as integral to hip hop as beats. In his recent project with the talented producer 9th Wonder entitled The Planet ink, collage, paint and digital illustration all come together to create a surreal world, which 9th Wonder's soul-charged production provides the perfect soundtrack to.
