Alhaja Queen Salawa Abeni and
her Waka Moderniser - I Love You,
Kollington Records



















This week I received a request for some juju, fuji or apala.
It's been some time but we had her before at the GG.
This is a type of music I enjoy once in a while but know
absolutely nothing about. The rhythms are overwhelming
and I think Queen Salawa Abeni has a huge voice,
why don't you give it a try ?

tracks;

1 Bi eye oni eye sinu
- Suru lo dara
- Asa pelu adie
- Alhaji Chief Kollington Ayinla je akeweje
- Oro ibanuje ko ni kan wa
- I love you
2 Eku odun eku iyedun
- Eyin iya eba mi re
- Apada saburu ko ni bawa
- Awa ko ni mo orori omo wa
- Ko seye to le fara we igun
- Olorun lo fun wa lorin wa ko

Boo!

It seems that one man's Apala is another man's Fuji, and vice versa.

I'm a massive Alhadji Haruna Ishola and his Apala Group fan. A the mind-bogglingly staggering discovery of a female counterpart/counterpoint to the Great Man has set my mind agog.

I came, I downloaded, I listened: more 'Fuji', methinks! However, none of the other links are functional.

Boo! Hiss!

Ditto with 'Zulu Jive'.

Then again, I have availed myself of the entire 'Ghana, Highlife' library: Ik ben erg blij!

Pardon my Dutch...
