This video documents the extraordinary breadth of the Nigerian music scene. Popularized in the West by such musicians as Fela Kuti and King Sunny Ade, the musical legacy of Nigeria embraces many styles from ethereal juju rhythms to the shattering funk of afrobeat. A country in transition, Nigeria's music reflects this. There are street musicians playing ancient music on traditional instruments, as well as clubs pounding to beats that wouldn't sound out of place in a New York nightclub.
