Forthcoming on Hot Casa: “A fantastic afro-beat album from a Fela Anikulapo Kuti disciple and Kalakuta Republic member. A sublime spiritual and political session recorded in 1979 at the Emi studio in Lagos (Nigeria). Arranged and self produced, this second Kingsley Buckor’s album, hopelessly obscure and impossible to find ranks alongside the best afro-beat album in history!”
