Description: Vinyl LP pressing. I It was in Benin City, in the heart of Nigeria, that a new hybrid of intoxicating highlife music known as Edo Funk was born. It first emerged in the late 1970s when a group of musicians began to experiment with different ways of integrating elements from their native Edo culture and fusing them with new sound effects coming from West Africa ´s night-clubs. Unlike the rather polished 1980 ´s Nigerian disco productions coming out of the international metropolis of Lagos Edo Funk was raw and reduced to it's bare minimum. Someone was needed to channel this energy into a distinctive sound and Sir Victor Uwaifo appeared like a mad professor with his Joromi studio. Uwaifo took the skeletal structure of Edo music and relentless began fusing them with synthesizers, electric guitars and 80 ´s effect racks which resulted in some of the most outstanding Edo recordings ever made. An explosive spiced up brew with an odd psychedelic note dubbed "Edo Funk". Format: VINYL LP Label: Analog Africa Genre: International Country: US Tracks:
