Artiste: Harry Mosco

Song Title: Sugar Cane Baby

Song Details: Title track from the 1982 album off the stables of Samba, this one is by Funkees band leader Harry Mosco Agada, a group with some major buzz back in the ‘70s. The acclaimed rock band dropped two albums and by 1977 had split up. We haven’t stopped listening to their materials however, this joint here is still a party jam by any standard. Enjoy!

Artiste: Fela Anikulapo Kuti

Song Title: Zombie

Song Details: If the world comes to a close today, Fela will go down as one of the world’s finest, most listened-to in his genre; and perhaps Nigeria’s greatest ever. His materials stay banging across boards, breaking the time barrier and genre alteration issues of Nigerian music today. To crown it all, he is still RELEVANT. Fela’s themes and lyrical compositions are still as weighty as ever. Enough said, enjoy this 1977 smash below.
