Description

Reissue of this rare (and excellent) Nigerian/Ghana funk record. Originally released in 1983, Includes the jam 'African Soul Power' which you might have heard getting spins by your favorite DJs....Incl. a poster + extensive liner notes...Fela Kuti believed the identical twins known as BASA BASA to possess magical powers, bringing luck and prosperity. Fela co-produced their first LP, and played on their second. But the wondrous powers of the Nyaku twins from Ghana reached their summit on their third album, where BASA BASA recorded with producer and multi-instrumentalist THEMBA “T-FIRE” MATEBESE in Nigeria. This collaboration resulted in the bewitching HOMOWO album, which combines the earthy mood of the twins and the futuristic vision of Themba Matebese as well as the hot and sweaty afro disco sound of Lagos, where the album was recorded. From the blue title track HOMOWO to the afro disco floor burner AFRICAN
SOUL POWER, the album makes a consistent listen. Amsterdam based DJ collective and vinyl shop VINTAGE VOUDOU makes the highly sought-after LP available again after almost four decades,
working in close collaboration with the artists.
