William Onyeabor "Anything You Sow" 1985

The legendary nigerian funk singer and songwriter William Onyeabor passed away earlier this year at the age of 70. Since 2013 the world music enthusiasts Luaka Bop have been reissued his entire catalog between 1977-1985, support them here. Anything You Sow is an amazing record with a danceble mix of 80s synthwave, electronic, funk with vibes of the nigerian folk-tradition, very joyful. This album is one of those timeless records that easyily could have been made in 2017 by some indie-lo fi-dudes. And, It's not hard to realize how much Onyeabor 80s stuff has been influenced David Byrne through his own career. Groovy!
