Menelik Wossenachew - Menew Bacher Kere

Take care,


Roger Damawuzan - Wait For Me (Togo, 1970's, Disques Aziza)


Classic track tonight with "Wait for Me", crazy afro funk track by Mister Roger Damahouzan, the Togolese James Brown, who also played with "L'Orchestre Les As du Benin" (listen here) - Enjoy !!

More, this compilation, pressed in Ghana, is full of treasures by the greatests figures of the Togolese musical scene (Julie Akoussah, le Super Boboto, Bella Bellow..).. Recommended !

All the best,

The Identicals - Akwa Kayi Ji Bia Nuwa (Nigeria, 1977 , EMI NIGERIA)

The Identicals was a Nigerian band composed by two twins brothers, Peter (Bass) and Paul (Guitar), who played around Lagos clubs and studios (as backing members for other musicians) back in the 70's.

The song presented here, "Akwa Kayi Ji Bia Nuwa" is taken from their one and only album, "Rock Exponent".

The title of this song could be translated (in Igbo language) as "We Come Into This World Crying" - Enjoy !
