Release # 12 in Mr Bongos Africa 45 series.

'Shaloade’ is an uptempo afro-latin business of the highest order. You might recognise Wganda Kenya from our Latin 45’s series; they are infact a

Latin band produced by the legendary Fruko. This is a cover version of Fela Kuti’s ‘Shakara Oloje’ originally released on Discos Fuentes in 1976, hence their inclusion here in Africa 45’s.

‘Ajo’ – We have released two albums by Peter King on Mr Bongo, ‘Miliki Sound’ and ‘Shango’. ‘Ajo’ is a Mr Bongo favourite. Reminiscent of Begining of The End’s ‘Funky Nassau’, it’s sweet, vocal driven afro-funk with killer uplifting horn sections, changes and drum breaks.

Originally appeared on King’s ‘Omo Lewa’ LP from 1976, originals of which are nigh on impossible to find for a reasonable price now.
