Nigeria in the 1970’s had one of the most prolific recording industries in Africa. The fusion of African rhythms and culture with jazz, funk, soul, and rock was a pan African phenomenon but nowhere was it more alive than in the cities and on the dancefloors of Nigeria.

Afro Baby features twelve musical rarities and highlights the unique vision of some of Nigeria’s most talented musicians and producers who added their Afro slant to the genres that were dominating the western popular music charts.

The burgeoning interest in the history of Afrobeat and Afro-funk continues and this collection presents some of the best examples of funky Afro music from Africa’s most populated nation.
