Ali Chukwuma and his Peacemakers International
Editions Namaco 1977


It is over five years ago this Nigerian passed by here. Nowadays
we have so much talk about threatening of upcoming war, it can’t
hurt to honour a band called International Peacemakers. From 1977,
exactly 40 years ago, today we have Ali Chukwuma and his Peacemakers
International visiting us. I’d say give it a load of spins and let’s
hope it has the desirable effect..

Het is alweer meer dan vijf jaar geleden dat deze Nigeriaan
hier langs kwam. Met alle oorlogsdreiging die we momenteel
kennen, kan het geen kwaad een band te eren die de Internationale
Vredestichters heet. Uit 1977 alweer, op de kop af 40 jaar geleden,
hebben we vandaag Ali Chukwuma and his Peacemakers International.
Draai hem grijs en dan maar hopen dat het effekt heeft..

tracks ;

01 – Ezi nne nwanyi oma
02 – Uko family special
03 – Nzewi brothers
04 – Ogeli sili obi
05 – Uche echegbue ndi nwelu

    Moos, you did the work for them. I’ve often wondered if some of the mp3 files that are being sold on itunes, Amazon, etc., originate from your site. Some artists and labels don’t even have access to their own music from decades ago. Thanks.

    Yeah, but Moos, you kinda nicked them yourself didn’t you?

      Of course, none of them albums is truly mine..and everybody can use it as I said..
      a little credit for finding them would be in place don’t you think ?
      I did invest lots of time and bought the albums after searching for ages..
      come on..

        …no, you come on…
        you actually claimed ownership of the music!
        you have now deleted your complaint so I guess you understood my subtext for whatever reason

        a little credit for….? well I have news for you, unfortunately it can be a cruel harsh unfair ‘dog eat dog’ world outside of the Moos-iverse

        by the way, you don’t need to tell me what effort it takes to keep this site afloat, I can work that out for myself
        what I can’t work out is exactly why you do it!

        but don’t take any notice of me
        – just another hard-bitten cynic on the web*
        – take pity – somebody has to do it
        if for no other reason than to enable all you bleeding-heart altruists to prosper
        – its all in the Ying and Yang y’know

    Ha Moos, thank you for your efforts over and over again. If you don’t point out the good music, I do not know what to buy or what to look out for. I am glad to listen before I buy. Anonymous above is wrong in stating that you nick anything. I guess you buy the album, treat it with care, share the music in mp3 format, where the secondary goal seems that more people buy the good stuff where they can.
    and about not getting credit….you do not really think a prophet is credited in the own country, so why you?

    greetings Richard

    Moos you deserve lots of credits for you work, if only for the consistency and vast amount of beautiful music that might otherwise get lost. Thank you for every single post you did so far, it has enriched my life.

    Hello Moos and greetings from Los Angeles. Listen, in my opinion this here Global Groove blog is going down in history as as one of the great musical preserves of all time. I’m thinking your music and picture files are going to be used and enjoyed by people for a long long time. And Moos, long after we are all gone people will still be listening to the music you preserved and a lot of the time they won’t even realized that it was you who made it happen. So Moos thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You made it possible for me to learn about great artist like Orlando Owoh, The African Brothers, Prince Adekunle, Dele Abiodun, Ali Chukwuma, Sir Shina Adewale and so many more. Thank you Moos. You’re the best. Cole

      the world will still be enjoying the stuff I post long after I’m gone is a comforting thaught..
      peace and music untill eternity..

    I second Cole’s remarks. You not only persevered in putting up all this great music From Francophone (and a bit outside) Africa, you also set up your own server to distribute it when others took fright at shadows and started shutting down everything they offered. That’s dedication.

    Great album Moos. This is one of the records that first turned me on to West African music. Will always be a classic for me.
