Product Description

ABOUT THE ALBUM In response to countless requests, this unique album is recorded purely with African drums, percussion instruments, and voice. The listener can pick out the wonderful sounds of udu, djundjun, djembé, shekere, cajón, congas, talking drums, and koi-koi. Babá Ken explains, There is a special magic in African music, which all the human family can feel and share. As a village boy in Nigeria, I learned rhythms and songs from my parents and elders. This album is born from my memories of those happy days, when music was all around me, full of the joy and excitement of life. ABOUT THE ARTIST Babá Ken Okulolo is one of the few popular African musicians of today with deep roots in Nigerian musical history. As a bandleader, his warm personality animates three well-known bands, all with highly praised recordings to their credit: the Afrobeat supergroup KOTOJA, the all-star WEST AFRICAN HIGHLIFE BAND, and folk-music favorites the NIGERIAN BROTHERS. He was first seen in the U.S. on a world tour with King Sunny Adé, and is now based in California. In addition to his vast body of studio and production dates, Babá Ken is renowned for early stints with such Nigerian music legends as Fela Kuti, highlife master Dr. Victor Olaiya, and the seminal Afro-rock group Monomono. Five times, the Nigerian Journalists Association has voted him the country s top bassist. He received the 2009 JPF Music Award for Best African Album. Whether in performance or teaching the secrets of rhythm to his many students, Babá Ken spreads the healing joy of African music.

Review

For years, Baba Ken's fans and drumming students have been urging him to produce an album of drums and percussion. These songs fulfill that need and more. They are at once hypnotic and arousing. My grandchildren won't let me stop playing this CD! They know all the words by heart. Percussion devotees pick out the rhythm patterns and practice them on their own drums and dance floors. At work, it brightens up the whole day and keeps me humming along. --Jackie Gay Wilson

It's great music--I just love it. --Hugh Masekela
