A. Wganda Kenya - Shaloade
Uptempo afro-latin business of the highest order. You might recognise Wganda Kenya from our Latin 45's series, they are intact a Latin band produced by the legendary Fruko. This is a cover version of Fela Kuti's 'Shakara Oloje' originally released on Discos Fuentes in 1976, hence their inclusion here in Africa 45's.
AA. Peter King - Ajo
We have released two albums by Peter King on Mr Bongo, 'Miliki Sound' and 'Shango'.
'Ajo' is a Mr Bongo favourite. Reminiscent of Begining Of The End's 'Funky Nassau', it's sweet, vocal driven afro-funk with killer uplifting horn sections, changes and drum breaks.
Originally appeared on King's 'Omo Lewa' LP from 1976, originals of which are nigh on impossible to find for a reasonable price now Available from 19.02.2016
