Apala,Fuji & Waka Theme Week, day 6
Chief Dr. Sikiru Ayinde Barrister, Barry Wonder
Fuji Garbage Series II
Siky Oluyole Records 1988

Already in december 2008 I posted the first volume of Chief Dr.
Sikiru Barrister’s Fuji Garbage. This second volume opens with a
little disturbing hiss but sounds better later. Although fuji does
not have any guitars normally, this album does. One way or the
other, sparkling fuji record with the great Sikiru Ayinde Barrister.
Recorded in Afrodisia Recording Studio,
on Siky Oluyole Records ..

Het was reeds in december 2008 dat ik de eerste van de drie
volumes plaatste van Chief Dr. Sikiru Ayinde Barrister’s Fuji
Garbage serie. Dit tweede volume opent helaas met een licht
storende hiss maar klinkt verderop weer prima. Alhoewel fuji
eigenlijk geen gitaren meebrengt doet deze plaat dit wel. Hoe
dan ook, dit is een sprankelende fuji beleving met de grote
Sikiru Ayinde Barrister. Opgenomen in Afrodisia
Recording Studio, op Siky Oluyole Records ..

Yesterday’s Mistake / Sorry, Foutje ..

Dear Groovers, yesterday I posted Alhaji (Chief) Kollington Ayinla
& his African Fuji ’78 Organisation but made a stupid mistake.
It never happened to me before but I recorded side two of the
album two times. Luckily, Theo, an awake visitor, warned me and
this morning I did it over. So I’m very sorry for the 85 people
who had downloaded it. Throw away yesterday’s file and download
it again. This time you’ll find the right tracks.

Beste Groevers, gisteren heb ik een plaat van Alhaji (Chief)
Kollington Ayinla & his African Fuji ’78 Organisation geplaatst
maar er zat helaas een domme fout in de file. Het is me nog niet
eerder gebeurd maar ik heb per ongeluk twee maal de b-side opgenomen.
Het spijt me voor de 85 mensen die hem al hadden gedownload, jullie
zullen dit nog een keertje moeten doen. Gooi die van gisteren maar weg.
Dit keer heb ik beide kanten erop gezet, foutje, bedankt ..

Sikiru Ayinde Barrister’s belangrijkste opponent was zonder

Apala, Fuji & Waka Theme Week, day 1
Alhaji Ayinla Omowura & his Apala Group
“Ati d’Ariyo”, EMI 1979

De laatste tijd zit ik volop in de Nigeriaanse muziek. Eerder
hadden we hier op de Global groove al een Nigerian Week.
Hierin kwamen juju, apala, fuji en highlife al aan de orde.
Later hadden we een week met in het bijzonder de Etsakor
en Afenmai highlife sound. De komende week staat vervol-
gens volledig in het teken van Apala, Fuji en Waka. Deze
stromingen staan bol van drums en percussie gecombineerd
met vokale hoogstandjes. Eerst was er apala, met artiesten
als Haruna Ishola en Ayinla Omowura. Daaruit kwam de fuji
voort, Ishola en Omowura waren van de eerste lichting en
werden opgevolgd door jongens als Alhaji Sikiru Ayinde Barrister
en Kollington Ayinla. Wasiu Ayinde Marshall was hot in
weer later stadium en in zijn slipstream Adewale Ayuba. Tij-
dens de jaren 80 kwam een mengeling van juju, fuji en tradi-
tionele Yoruba muziek in zwang die waka wordt genoemd.
Dames als Salawa Abeni en Alhaja Adijat Kubura Alaragbo,
Salawa Abeni werd de ‘Queen of Waka Music’ gedoopt.
Kortom, het belooft een week vol drumspektakel met een
vleugje Islam maar ook keihard dansgeweld, enjoy ..

For quite a few months now I am caught up in Nigerian music.
On an earlier occasion we had a sole Nigerian Week here at the
Global Groove with juju, fuji, apala and highlife. Then later we
had a week with Etsakor and Afenmai highlife. The coming week
will be entirely dominated by apala, fuji and waka. These waves
are full of drums and percussion combined with vocal tours de
force. First there was apala, with artists like Harune Ishola and
Ayinla Omowura. Apala was followed by fuji, Ishola and Omowara
were the first, then came guys like Alhaji Sikiru Ayinde Barrister
and Kollington Ayinla. Wasiu Ayinde Mashall was hot in the late
eighties followed by for instance Adewale Ayuba. During the same
eighties waka music became popular, a mixture of juju, fuji and
traditional Yoruba music. Ladies like Salawa Abeni and Alhaja
Adijat Kubura Alaragbo, Salawa Abeni was crowned ‘Queen
of Waka Music’. In short, it will be a week full of drums with
a spark of Islam but also powerful dance vibes ..
