Akwassa was among Nigeria's best '70s Afro-beat bands. Having released 'La'ila' in 1975, the group was among the early
Nigerian funk bands to get an album out. Akwassa was closely
related to the Heads Funk Band, since most members played in
both acts. Akwassa originally was a duo made up of Felix Day
(guitar and vocals) and Kevin Coburn (organ, synthesizer and
vocals). Felix Day is actually Feladey, also known as the
guitarist in Aktion (another top notch Nigerian band).

CLETIN, BENIS - JUNGLE MAGIC

Considered an acid boogie classic, 'Jungle Magic' is a cosmic transmission from the early days of Nigerian disco. The bass lines are lethal. The synths are fat and squelchy. And the groove is non-stop and primal. Channeling the jungle gods of funk and introducing them to ... read more »
