With a voiceover by Nigerian icon Fela Kuti, Fonko explores the dual influence politics and music can have on each other and how contemporary African musicians are drawing on history to influence the future. Featuring interviews with musicians such as Nneka and Sister Fa, Fonko is a stimulating look at the deeply intertwined relationship between musical expression and politics and how music can be used as a weapon to reclaim power.
