Afro Baby – The Evolution of the Afro-Sound in Nigeria 1970-79

(Sound Way) Used 2xLP $50.00

β€œThe fusion of African rhythms and culture with jazz, funk, soul and rock was continent-wide phenomenon, but nowhere was it more prolific and active than the cities and dance floors of Nigeria. The twelve rarities on this 2004 compilation highlight how the afro-sound influenced all areas of the music scene and how it progressed through the decade. From funky afro-jazz, soul and afro-highlife to big, dance floor afro-beat, Nigeria led the way in West Africa at the time.”
