Fela! On Broadway

Fela! On Broadway

If there’s one thing we did well on our trip to New York, it was definitely be making new and hopefully lasting connections with some really awesome people. On this trip, we met and made friends with a few of the guys from the Fela! musical which was on Broadway at the time. It really is seldom that you meet people who touch your heart with beautiful energy and authentic vibes as these guys did. We formed a connection with them immediately, and spent most of our last days enjoying laughs, dancing, drinks and music together.

Being the generous souls they are, they invited us to come and see the show on a day that our good friend Duain was playing lead as the legendary Fela. Some of us had seen the show before, but seeing it again felt like it was the very first time seeing it. The energy, the beautiful music, the beautiful people, the vibrant colours, the “oh my word, thats amazing” kind of dancing made for an unforgettable experience. There’s just something about this musical that pulls at your heartstrings. Something about this show that makes you so proud to be African.

Thank you dear friends, for this wonderful experience!
