Afro Baby:The Evolution of the Afro Sound in Nigeria-CD
Afro Baby: The Evolution of the Afro Sound 1970-79 Afro-Baby -- Evolution Of The Afro Sound In Nigeria 1970-1979 new CD Get ready to discover a whole new realm of African Funk -- because this collection digs deeper than any we've ever had before! The mighty Soundway Records have come up with a blistering batch of grooves that push way past the bigger hits on the global scene -- to the real roots of the Afro Funk sound of the 70s, an assortment of Nigerian recordings that have an undeniable combination of African rhythms and American funk! Percussion is at the forefront of the set -- and most tracks feature lots of skittish drum work, topped off by hard riffing on sax, guitar, and keyboards. The whole thing's very much in the best tradition of our favorite grooves by Fela -- and titles include "Asa Sa" by Fred Fisher, "No Wrong Show" by Thony Shorby Nyenwi, "Omelebele" by Dr Victor Olaiya's International All Stars, "Afro Baby" by Stephen Osita Amaechi & His Afro Rhythm Skies, "Ochonma" by Martins Brothers Dance Band, "Alikali Adajo" by Sahara All Stars, "Lagos Sisi" by Bola Johnson, "Ire" by Don Isaac Ezekiel Combination, and "Son Of Mr Bull Dog" by The Mebusas.
