Item ID: 437943

Repress! Based in the Havana Nightclub, in the central plateau town of Jos, the Sahara All Stars Of Jos weren't part of the Lagos scene or the one in the east. Their leader, Dan Satch Ayo, had played with Dr. Sir Warrior in The Orientals and jammed with Mohammed Ahidjo and Sonny Akpan from The Funkees. Together with the All Stars he took the best of both scenes and created his own tight, hypnotic groove. First released in 1978, 'Sahara All Stars Of Jos' is a musical journey through all of those influences. Engineered by Fela Kuti's regular knob twiddler, Emmanuel A. Odunesu, it is a tight, funky sonic gem and a timely reminder that, in the '70s, the groove was strong all over Nigeria.

Also available: SAHARA ALL STARS OF JOS (CD).
