Although Femi Kuti sought to distinguish his music from his father's, Fela Kuti, he's followed a similar career — both in being outspoken politically in his native Nigeria and fusing Afrobeats and jazzy Afropop with other sounds. A former Motown artist, he's worked with Mos Def, Common and many other American hip-hop artists. Gypsyphonic Disko opens. Tickets $29.50. 9 p.m. Thursday. House of Blues, 225 Decatur St., 310-4999; www.hob.com
