It doesn’t get much better than this loving compilation of Nigerian William Onyeabor’s brief career in dance/electro/disco/funk/afrobeat fusion. He may not be as recognizable as Fela, but the man’s a legend in his own right.
If this album doesn’t get you moving, you may need help.
An amazing find. David Bryne's Luaka Bop label released a series called "World Psychedelic Classics" and this compilation spotlights Nigerian musican William Onyeabor. Psychedelic is not entirely accurate; his music is a bubbling stew of funk, Afro-pop, synth, and even disco. It has some affinities with Fela Kuti and James Brown's more adventurous work in that it often settles into a groove and goes on for a long time. Onyeabor was active in the 70s and 80s, but then apparently converted to Christianity and abandoned music. This is a very cool, very funky record.
