this excellent series continues with another compilation by curator duncan brooker.

excavating another choice batch of rare grooves from nigeria’s label archives, the new edition places the spotlight on some of the deeper fusions happening across the country during the 1970s as traditional guitar highlife blended with jazz & funk, hypnotic juju grooves became more progressive & young nigerian bands came through with their own heavy west african take on u.s. soul, funk, disco & rock. again, this is a fascinating look at nigerian music, post-independence, that sees a fusion of styles that is utterly compelling.
