the horns pack a punch & the energy's high as the afrobeat obsessed big band get the 'call of kuti' with this rhythmically stunning set of tracks.

right from the effervescent opener, tracks like 'the rat catcher', 'him belly no go sweet', 'ari degbe' & 'ibeji' capture the band’s fiery telepathy & unrelenting sense of groove, while also showcasing their most concisely focused attack yet. from the deft rumble of the new rhythm section to the leonine growl of long time frontman amayo, the band, which also includes victor axelrod (organ, electric piano, sticks), marcos garcía (guitar) & marcus farrar (shekere, sticks), sounds more locked in & self-assured than ever.
