The Grammy® Award-nominated album, No Place For My Dream, is the latest album from legendary afro-beat musician, Femi Kuti. His albums and hugely popular concerts are imbued with the weight of family legacy and Kuti's own individual intents.

The central aim of No Place For My Dream is getting back to the essence of Afrobeat, the music Fela pioneered in the late '60s. Since beginning his career as a teenager in his father (Fela Kuti)'s band, Femi has struck a delicate balance: carrying his own torch, especially the activist dimension, of Afrobeat while developing his own sound. Kuti crafts his music with the utmost care, practicing sax for six hours a day, testing each melody, beat, and groove in the club-meets-laboratory of The Shrine.
