Roy Chicago and his "Abalabi Rhythm" Dandies (Highlife from Nigeria, 1961)

(PHILIPS 420 011).

Roy Chicago (John Akintola Ademuwagun, x - 1989) plays highlife in a nigerian style, based of various nigerian floklores elements. What is particularly interesting is the introduction of talking drum, like in "Sere Fun Mi Baby", track from early sixties.
