Hear the soundtrack to the new Fela Kuti documentary, Finding Fela

Even if you haven’t had the chance to see director Alex Gibney’s new documentary about Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti, Finding Fela, one thing is already for certain: It has a killer soundtrack. A sprawling collection of transcendentally funky tracks that span Kuti’s revolutionary body of work, the double-disc set also features a previously unreleased live version of Kuti’s meditative yet scathing “Colonial Mentality.” The soundtrack is being streamed in full here; hopefully it’ll tide over anyone who has yet to catch the film.

Finding Fela: The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be released July 29 via Knitting Factory Records.
