Common hit the stage with Femi Kuti & The Positive Force to perform “Water No Get Enemy” at an afrobeat bash in New York City hosted by Central Park‘s SummerStage. The performance also featured performances from afro-futurists Sinkane and legendary DJ King Britt. The experience was captured by Okayafrica TV in a recap that features an exclusive interview with Common – who spit a freestyle over the landmark afrobeat track penned by Kuti’s father Fela – and Femi Kuti. The bright music and passionate movement onstage is bolstered by footage of Femi Kuti’s joyful backstage commentary, most of it aimed at encouraging the audience to find strength and courage in the music he presents. Watch the interview and performance footage after the jump.
