£11.99

Cracking Compilation of Fuji, Afrobeat, Highlife and Juju, styles of music made famous throughout the World by the likes of the great percussionist Tony Allen and musical genius Fela Kuti.
Ranging across styles from the mid sixties and to the early eighties, this compilation covers various rhythmical angles and musical shapes of Nigeria’s proudest and most famous exporter of music: Lagos.
The amount of intelligence, skill and pure love for music packed inside this LP is so tremendous it’s just very hard not to feel involved when listening, let alone disliking it…

Packaged in a Gatefold 2 x 12” sleeve containing detailed notes by Michael Veal, Fela’s Biographer and splattered with vibrant, spot varnished artwork by young Lagotian Ogunajo Ademola.
