ONYEABOR, WILLIAM - WHO IS WILLIAM ONYEABOR? (CD)


"To answer the title: He's an Igbo chieftain from Eastern Nigeria who produced eight funky, spacey, handsomely strange synth-disco LPs in the late Seventies and Eighties before embracing Christianity and ditching his career. The catalog gets cherry-picked here for a killer party mix that combines Fela Kuti's extended-groove trance states and soulman call-and-response vocals with old-school drum machines and synths. And songs like "Why Go to War" and "Atomic Bomb" suggest he's probably still a hell of a preacher." (Pitchfork)
