GOOD MIX

In honor of William Onyeabor (who passed away yesterday), here's an array of African sounds mixed by French producer Joakim on behalf of David Byrne’s label, Luaka Bop.

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!
