"Finding Fela" is my personal memoir of a journey to Lagos, Nigeria, to film the legendary African musician Fela Kuti. As a white man from Chicago, I experienced extreme culture shock and even got arrested and jailed. Eventually, I lived near Fela's commune, talked with him, and saw him perform at his Lagos club, The Shrine. Now deceased, Fela was the focus of a recent Broadway musical Fela!
