Editorial Reviews

The second of the Lijadu Sisters four Afrodisia albums, 1977 s Mother Africa is markedly different from its predecessor, Danger, released from the previous year. The twins s glowing melodies and warm harmonies are as before, but the accompanying band s lineup and arrangements, both still co-directed by Biddy Wright, owe less to rock and funk, and more to traditional Yoruba music.

All four of the classic 1970 s Lijadu Sisters albums are now being re-released by Knitting Factory Records-Danger (1976), Mother Africa (1977), Sunshine (1978) and Horizon Unlimited (1979). Wright, along with Taiwo and Kehinde, were able to flawlessly bring traditional and electric styles together, producing a style largely their own. Now re-released on vinyl, and for the first time on CD, The Lijadu Sisters can be heard again.
