Femi Kuti & The Positive Force Band and Bombino

In 1986 Femi formed his own band, The Positive Force, with his sisters Yeni and Sola as the lead dancers, where he began establishing himself as an artist independent of his father's massive legacy.  The success of the Bombino's first album validated his choice to make a career out of music, and he began playing regularly for tourists and locals alike.
