Baba Eyin Oke and his Dadakuada Group
Kwara System
Ifelodun Sound Studio 1978

Today I want to introduce an Islamic type of Nigerian
music we haven’t heard here before. It appears to be
some kind of apala or fuji, only voices over drums. We
find Baba Eyin Oke and his Dadakuada Group. You can
read the wiki-page on ‘Dadakuada’ below. Listen ..

Vandaag wil ik je een Islamitische muziekstijl uit Nigeria
laten horen die we hier nog niet eerder hadden. Het lijkt
op apala of fuji in mijn oren, slechts gezang en drums. We
vinden baba Eyin Oke and his Dadakuada Group. Je kunt
de wiki-pagina over ‘Dadakuada’ hieronder lezen, luister ..

    Wow I´ve been waiting in anticipation for music like this… I believe this is reminiscent of some kind of “Sakara Singing”, like the fabulous Yusufu Olatunji [The Great Sakara Singer] has demonstrated… So perfectly nice to encounter more of this beautyfullnesss…
