Probably early 80s album by Juju singer Salawa Abeni, who has released a number of works. This one also features heavy and deep juju sound, especially B3 with a particularly obscure percussion sound, A1 with its funky and unique rhythmic chords, and A3 with  wild beat underpinnings mixed with a vocal chorus are awesome. It is also interesting to find similarities with the music of Candomblé, which is said to have been introduced across the continent.

数多くの作品をリリースしているナイジェリア出身のJujuの歌い手Salawa Abeniのおそらく80年初頭の作品。この作品でも濃密なジュジュサウンドを収録していますが特にオブスキュアなパーカッションサウンドが凄いB3、ファンキーで独特のリズムのコードが印象的なA1、ワイルドなビートの下地にヴォーカルのコーラスが混ざり合うA3が素晴らしいです。大陸を渡って伝わったとされるカンドンブレ音楽などとも共通点を見出せるのも面白いです。

A1 - Ejire

A3 - Alhaji M. Balogun

B3 - Oro To Mi Ate
