Album Review
Don Farrell
Reviewed 2012-11-25 
Traditional Yoruba music with Yoruba percussion and electric guitar from Nigeria recorded in 1977. The second of four albums originally on Afrodisia now rereleased on Knitting Factory. They toured with Ginger Baker and Sunny Ade. After a fall in their NYC apartment in the late 1980's that resulted in a spinal injury they retired from music. Since the rerelease of their albums they hope to tour again.They currently live in Harlem.
