Dr. Orlando Owoh & his Africa
Kenneries International
Obirin Asiko
Afrodisia 1981

Born as Stephen Oladipupo Olaore Owomoyela, we know
him as Dr. Orlando Owoh. He was well known for his Highlife,
however on this album from 1981 the record’s label claims
we hear hi-life juju. To my opinion a little more highlife than
juju, but it does shine through for the trained listener .
Get it and Spread it !

Hij werd geboren als Stephen Oladipupo Olaore Owomoyela,
wij kennen hem echter als Dr. Orlando Owoh. Hij was bekend
om zijn highlife. Op het label van dit album echter wordt de
muziek hi-life juju genoemd. Naar mijn bescheiden mening
iets meer highlife dan juju, maar je hoort het er wel
doorheen als geƶefend luisteraar.
Get it and Spread it !

  1. Dr. Ganja did a wonderful job of bridging highlife and juju, tasteful guitars (though polyphonic, not typical highlife) and torrid dundun “talking” drums. Way different than other juju stars, but still slotted in “juju” in my database.

    Thanks again, Moos. I hope you are back on your feet, dancing, again.

  2. A big big thank you Moos. This is one I didn’t have. It’s a very nice day indeed when I get a new Orlando Owoh. Cheers from the Philippines. Cole
