An incredible batch of African funk and heavily percussive groove -- featuring a varied, yet cohesive selection of tunes that run deeper than most compilations! Lagos Chop Up manages to work a little bit of magic in its overall consistency -- the tracklist features tunes from the mid 60s all the way through the beginning of the 80s without sacrificing even a shred of successive coherence! It's all the more impressive given the breadth of styles -- from Fela-inspired Afro funk (naturally) to raw native folk, featuring percussion ensembles, street musicians and vocalists from many walks of life! Amazing! 12 tracks in all: "Awa Ni Superstars" by Sir Shina Adewale And His Super Stars International, "Omelebele" by Dr Victor Loaiya, "Soffry Soffry Catch Monkey" by Ikenga Super Stars Of Africa, "Selense" by Eastern Minstrels, Owuna Derina" by Cardinal Rex Jim Lawson, "Kpanlogo" by Worners Brigade Band and much more!
