I.K. Dairo and his Blue spots –
Ashiko Music vol. 1
Decca West Africa 1971

I.K. Dairo, front

Some time ago we had volume two, today it’s volume one’s turn.
I.K. Dairo is the man who’s juju is now called Ashiko music, after
it’s old and original name. Playing guitar, talking drum and acor-
deon and singing in various languages he is the group’s main
man. After a firm cleaning the vinyl sounds as good as
new so get it & spread like you’re used to.

    Still my favorite juju record, ever since I bought it in 1972. Very different from Sunny Ade or Ebenezer Obey. Has anybody written about juju styles?

    actually much more inspiriting for the future when all hope was actually gone..

    You have no idea what you just did by unleashing this album. Its an ultimate classic. Both Ashiko vol 1 & 2 were recorded on the same day to the astonishment of the studio sound engineers who has never witnessed such wizardry.
