Description

Following on World Spirituality Classics 3 comes this 5LP box set  with a limited edition book 'The Journey So Far' about Waziri’s remarkable career

Waziri hails from a small part of Edo state in southern Nigeria called afemailand, known for being a harmonious region where muslims and christians live — and dance — together. And there, as a devout muslim and an exemplar of religious piety, Waziri fuses etsako/afemai folk styles with pan-nigerian highlife and pop to create a sublime vehicle for his islamic philosophy that gets everyone — muslims, christians, whoever — on the dancefloor.

This 5LP set, vol. 1-5 (1978-1984), focuses on Waziri’s illustrious mid-career output — the music he created during the years leading up to and after he performed his first tajj (you might recognize some of the hits from the muslim highlife) — and includes a copy of the journey so far, a limited-edition book written and designed by his children, to celebrate waziri’s remarkable life and career.
