After 14 years of close collaboration Tony Allen stopped working with Fela Anikulapo Kuti. After breaking from the band during the gigs at Berlins festival in 1978. Tony Allen returned to Lagos to start working on new compositions. His independence inspired him to break-away from his regular routine of putting 2 tracks on every single album
he tracks on No Discrimination are also focussed more towards subjects of tolerance, brotherhood and peace. This was his final work during the 70's, after which he started to move beyond the border of Nigeria by collaborating with artists worldwide. Till this day he remains on of the greatest kit drummers alive. Part of the Tony Allen reissue series on Kindred Spirits, featuring remastered versions and original restored artwork. A must for afro-beat fans around the globe.
