monomono

Here’s a rare Afro rock-psych bomb from Nigeria’s Monomono. I was lucky enough to find a copy of this LP in Kano, Nigeria in 2009. Out of the whole stack of records I took home with me, this is probably my favorite, front to back. Rock solid Afro rock from the first track to the last.

Here’s a bit of shameless self promotion. I’ve been sitting on this little edit I did of Kabbala’s Afro disco classic “Ashewo Ara” for a minute. Figured it was time to share. Can’t wait to test this one at Sol Power this weekend, along with a few other fresh Sol Power edits we’ve been cooking up.
