their striking and powerful lead vocalist soars above a wild and energetic backdrop of polyrhythms played on traditional talking drums, trap drums, electronic and street percussion to create a powerful wall of intense sound.

this line-up includes some of the country’s finest ‘Fuji’ master drummers and singers and was newly recorded by Soul Jazz Records in Lagos, Nigeria. Fuji is the heavily percussive and improvisational style of Nigerian popular music, at once modern and yet deeply rooted in the traditional Islamic Yoruba culture of Nigeria. this hi-energy street music evolved out of the Islamic celebration of Ramadan, which became a major event in mid-20th century Lagos. Nigeria Fuji Machine’s ‘Synchro Sound System & Power’ is a powerful and intense musical experience.
