Jay Smooth caught this footage of the cast of the Jay-Z and Will & Jada Smith backed Broadway musical Fela! at the annual Roots Holiday Jam @ B.B. King’s last night.

Says Jay:

Some footage from the Roots Holiday Jam at BB King’s last night, featuring the cast of the “Fela” broadway musical plus their band from the show, the (famous in their own right) Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra.

The rest of the show was great too, Mos Def, Brother Ali, Gary Bartz(!), the Hypnotic Brass Band, and of course the legendary Roots crew.. shoutout to Meka from 2dopeboyz.com for the invite.
