Truly innovative like Fela Kuti and Ginger Baker
Ginger Baker is an English drummer. He was widely recognized for his unique approach to drumming with African influence and the use of two bass drums. His style was very influential and Kweli here acknowledges how innovative it was and he attempts to be so.
Fela Kuti was a Nigerian musician also famous as an activist. His innovation can be seen through his pioneering of Afrobeat music.
Ginger Baker lived in Nigeria for 1970-1976 and collaborated creatively with Kuti during that time.
