I strongly encourage those of you who like to dance to consider attending this event. In terms of music that makes me smile, Fela is right up there with Jerry, Miles & 'trane.

It's freaking awesome music that puts a smile on your face & forces your feet to move. Friday night will be tons of fun.

I won't be there, but if you live in Ottawa, you should go.
