This is a very unique and exciting Rook Radio episode to announce. We've just had a vinyl shipment direct from Lagos, containing all original pressings of Nigerian afrobeat and highlife. We've compiled some of the picks into 60 minute mix for your ears. Expect everything from the funk-influenced sounds of Fela Kuti to the virtuosic guitar stylings of King Sunny Ade. These records have been well loved, so expect a dose of that warm crackle we've grown to know and love.
The best part is... All of these records are available on our Discogs Store. Make sure you're quick though, because they won't last long! Hit us up by email and tell us what you want for 10% off the Discogs price (this applies to any 2nd hand stuff on our Discogs page).
As usual, we've got the full video on our YouTube channel, so please support us and subscribe if you're feeling it!
