More Info:

There are so many styles of music throughout Africa that it would be difficult for a Westerner to know where to start. This live album by King Sunny Ade would be a good place, for many reasons. What is Juju music? It is a lively style rooted in the interaction between elaborate percussion and guitars, and between the rollicking guitar lines and the grooving drums. This live performance of his North American tour brings the rhythmic sounds and electric guitars of Nigerian Juju music to your enjoyment. This is African guitar and drums at their very best, a kinetic whirlwind of rhythms that is riveting to listen to. Along with West African music here is a great recording of this modern African heritage.
