Even if you haven’t had the chance to see director Alex Gibney’s new documentary about Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti, Finding Fela, one thing is already for certain: It has a killer soundtrack. A sprawling collection of transcendentally funky tracks that span Kuti’s revolutionary body of work, the double-disc set also features a previously unreleased live version of Kuti’s meditative yet scathing “Colonial Mentality.” The soundtrack is being streamed in full here; hopefully it’ll tide over anyone who has yet to catch the film.

Finding Fela: The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be released July 29 via Knitting Factory Records.
