Gasper Lawal – Ajomasé, Cap Records 1980

Gasper Lawal, front

One of our visitors asked me to post some more Gasper Lawal,
I had a 12″ by him some time ago. This is the LP where that
track came from. Gasper Lawal’s music is hardly to compare
with any other type of African music. He used to play with
many European and other musicians and when he came back to
England in 1980 after some time in Nigeria, he made this LP.
Very surprising, check for yourself. To you Mike, cheers.

  1. Good recommendations. Great album. It isn’t Afrobeat or Juju either. If you know something else like this one, please give directions.

  3. Hey Moos,

    I’ve been waiting to hear this for so long, very excited! Gasper’s music really doesn’t sound like anything else. It’s in a class of it’s own. You can hear where Talking Heads/Eno borrowed some of their ideas (especially on the album “Fear of Music”). Thank you so much for posting and yeah, if you have anything else along these lines please recommend.

    Many Thanks,
    Mike

  5. I bought a vinyl copy of this when it was released, and it became one of my favourite records. I find Nigerian music purists don’t like it, but as Mike says, he’s somewhere of his own making.

    Another one I can move from the ‘to be digitised’ pile. Thanks for sharing.
