DESCRIPTION

This is the first official Mr. Bongo reissue of the extremely rare full-length album by Lagos-based bandleader Shina Williams. The record was born in 1979 when Shina put Biddy Wright, Fred Fisher, Saliu Alabi, Prince Bola, Tutu Shoronmu, Tunde Williams and several other decorated Nigerian musicians — who played with the likes of Fela Kuti, SJOB Movement, Sonny Okoson and King Bucknor among others — together to record. The result is ‘African Dances,’ a timeless fusion of afrobeat, electronics, boogie and disco. This record includes Williams’ most well-known song, “Agboju Logun,” that he knew was groundbreaking.
