Vintage Afro Beat - Chief Yapi Cook

A project by Michel Roche, aka Chief Yappi Cook, this album pays homage to the early hours of the Nigerian-born Afrobeat, carried by the figure of Fela Kuti. Brass, whawha guitars and electric organs restore luster to this genre whose unparalleled musical and political influence has helped shape modern music. Artwork: Emmanuel Prost
