GOOD READ

The Guardian on Luaka Bop's quest to reissue William Onyeabor's elusive catalog.

"All that fans knew was that Onyeabor released eight albums of exhilaratingly strange, synthesiser-led Afrobeat, laced with religious and political messages, on his own Wilfilms label between 1977 and 1985. Oft-recycled online claims that Onyeabor had studied cinematography in the Soviet Union and owned a flour mill could not be confirmed. He was a complete mystery."

Thanks for listening!
