Electronic Meditation
Thursday January 28th, 2016 with Sean McFee
Fela Traveller

Tonight music from Toubabou and Fela Kuti. But as always, we begin with song with words.

Toubabou was formed to play the Superfrancofete festival on the Plains of Abraham in 1974. They performed with a number of West African musicians and the live album Le Blé et le Mil was released. They followed with the studio album Attente the following year. The music's African influences come through predominantly in the percussion of Michel Seguin (whose solo album I played in December).
