Product Description

"We invite you to enjoy and dance to this music, which springs from our earliest village memories: songs our parents sang to us, the poly-rhythms we danced to in the moonlight, the lilting harmonies we enjoyed at the palm-wine vendor's cottage. We recorded it in the old-fashioned way, with only our voices, hand drums, percussions, and acoustic guitars. It brings a message of love, from the African soil which gave birth to us all, and from our blessed ancestors, to whom we offer our thanks and praise."

--Babá Ken Okulolo and the Nigerian Brothers

Nigerian master musician Babá Ken Okulolo is one of the few popular African musicians of today whose roots extend deep into traditional village life and folk music. Better known as the bandleader whose warm, smiling personality enlivens the popular Afro-beat band Kotoja and the all-star electric West African Highlife Band, in this acoustic project he and the Nigerian Brothers bring forth the universal healing magic of African music with their sweet vocal harmonies and intricate, intoxicating rhythms. This long-awaited, recording, "Songs from the Village," reveals rhythms from several cultures and includes lyrics in Urhobo, Yoruba, Itsekiri, Pidgin, and Hausa.

It's so deep, I have to keep on listening. It's the real roots and meaning of African music. (Henri-Pierre Koubaka, "Kumpo Beat" (KALW), June 2001) -- (Henri-Pierre Koubaka)
