The long list of legends that have made recent appearances at our show continues. First, it was Stevie, Talib Kweli, and Mos Def — now it’s Smokey Robinson. Here he is with FELA! band members Yoshi Takemasa, Brian Vargas, and Dylan Fusillo at LA’s Ahmanson Theatre. If you haven’t heard, we’re heading to Mr. Robinson’s hometown, Detroit, pretty soon. Check out exact dates and score tickets on our Tour Dates page.Tagged ahmanson theatre, brian vargas, detroit, dylan fusillo, fela, fela kuti, los angeles, mos def, smokey robinson, stevie wonder, talib kweli, yoshi takemasa |

The legendary Stevie Wonder was spotted during opening night of FELA! in Los Angeles. Here are a couple of photos from Stevie’s backstage visit with the cast at the Ahmanson Theatre. L-R: Stevie with the cast, Stevie with Yoshi Takemasa (the show’s percussionist), and Stevie with Gelan Lambert (cast). And just for kicks — here’s my favorite Stevie-related clip — an appearance on Sesame Street: Stevie Wonder on Sesame StreetTagged ahmanson theatre, fela, fela kuti, gelan lambert, los angeles, sesame street, stevie wonder, superstition, yoshi takemasa |
