Idowu Animasawun and his Lisabi International
Vol. 11, Apola Fantasia
Take Your Choice Records 1975

This is our first meeting with Idowu Animasawun and his
Lisabi International. His juju is quite psychadelic, poppy
guitars and percussion. At first I thought ‘apola’ was
another style of music, but no, Apola is a place in Nigeria
and the music is Yoruba Juju. Still learning all the time.
I kinda like this album, its sound, its artwork, all good ..

Dit is vandaag het eerste treffen met Idowu Animasawun
and his Lisabi International. Zijn juju is tamelijk psychadelisch,
met z’n trippy gitaren en percussie. Eerst dacht ik dat apola
een muziek stijl was, maar nee, het is een plaats in Nigeria
en de muziek is Yoruba Juju. Nooit uitgeleerd. Ik val behoorlijk
voor deze plaat, z’n geluid, z’n kunstige hoes, allemaal mooi ..

    Really looking forward to this obscure mid seventies psychedelic juju tinged slice of vinyl.

    Looking forward to hearing these too! Unfortunately, I’ve used all my data this month and have to wait two more days to hear the last two gems Moos posted 😿
