Description

Comb & Razor Sound is helmed by Nigerian musicologist and researcher Uchenna Ikonne. With 'Like Nashville In Naija'Ikonne examines a unmined portion of Nigeria's musical legacy, the influence of American country music on the people and performers of the West African nation.. The people of the West African nation of Nigeria have long been not only voracious consumers of country music, but fairly enthusiastic performers of it as well. Cowboy songs have remained a consistent part of most bands live repertoire, but relatively few artists have dedicated themselves to actually recording country music. They did exist, though; mostly in the1970s and 80s, but they were rarely heard outside the country, and in the intervening years, most of their output has fallen through the cracks of posterity, forgotten even by ardent music fans at home. Until now. Like Nashville in Naija: Nigeria's Romance with Country Music, Yesterday and Today collects some of the best country recordings as a loving tribute to Nigeria's cowboy troubadours of yore.
