Fela Kuti is known as the architect of Afro-beat, but Nigerian drummer Tony Oladipo Allen was the genre's prime mover. Allen melded highlife with traditional drum patterns and African-American R&B, funk, and jazz. He played with Fela from 1964 to 1979. This double CD, originally released as two LPs in the late '70s, makes it possible for a new generation to experience the Afro-tantric, sub-Saharan grooves Allen and Africa 70 laid down on the turntable and the dance floor. Allen locks down the du

Drummer Tony Allen was the rhythmic force behind Fela Kuti's influential Afro-beat ensemble of the 1970s. Though Allen's own recordings expanded and elaborated on the formula they co-created, his early LPs remained out of print for years. Now the long-lost treasures are back as double-CD releases, and they still move and groove with the same force as three decades ago. Imagine a Nigerian version of James Brown's band with Art Blakey's finesse and Max Roach's jazzy complexity and you'll understan

Guitar-Boy Superstar is the first survey of the long career of the legendary Nigerian musician, artist and poet Victor Uwaifo, one of Nigeria's greatest stars -- a long-overdue release that puts Victor Uwaifo next to other Nigerian greats better known in the West. Victor Uwaifo's mission to spread and preserve the cultural heritage of ancient Benin (Modern day Edo State, Nigeria) has seen him work as a commissioner for cultural affairs in his native Edo State, a University lecturer, acclaimed br

Nigeria Rock Special shines a light on the flipside of the sounds of Psychedelic Afro-Rock & Fuzz Funk coming out of Nigeria in the 1970s. Kids all over the world were picking up guitars. Spurred on by Cream drummer Ginger Baker's visits to Lagos and his band Airforce (featuring many Nigerian musicians), the rock reverberated around the universities and the craze that followed hit the youth population of Nigeria hard -- mixing fuzz guitar and heavy African rhythms with elements of Led Zeppelin,

I.K. Dairo is acknowledged as the father of the modern juju music sound, but Dairo was not one to rest on his laurels. I Remember is a testament to a musician in top form after decades on the scene. ''Mo Ti Yege'' and ''F'eso J'aiye'' are the supple extended jams one expects of a topnotch juju group, and Dairo and the Blue Spots don't disappoint on the shorter songs either. They blend percolating percussion, chatty talking drums, gently floating guitar lines, and praise-singing vocal harmonies t

Triple disc (two CDs + DVD) set. It's almost impossible to overstate the impact and importance of Fela Kuti : producer, arranger, musician, political radical, outlaw. He was all that, as well as showman par excellence and inventor of Afro-beat. Fela's death with complications from AIDS deeply affected musicians and fans internationally , as a musical and sociopolitical voice on a par with Bob Marley was silenced, with one million people attending his funeral. To commemorate the 10th Anniversary

King Sunny Ade's second international release carries on what he achieved with Juju Music, taking I.K. Dairo's legacy of juju music into the modern age. With more dialogue between instruments and voices, it flows a little more freely than its predecessor, and the title track, with its marvelous talking drum solo, is an absolute Ade gem. While the production occasionally sounds dated--the stereo effects are unnecessary--the music itself is nothing less than sensational. ''E Saiye Re'' stands as o
