I.K. Dairo and his Blue spots –
Ashiko Music vol. 1, Decca West Africa 1971

I.K. Dairo, front

Some time ago we had volume two, today it’s volume one’s turn.
I.K. Dairo is the man who’s juju is now called Ashiko music, after
it’s old and original name. Playing guitar, talking drum and acor-
deon and singing in various languages he is the group’s main
man. After a firm cleaning the vinyl sounds as good as
new so get it & spread like you’re used to.

I.K. Dairo & his Blue Spots

It does have a couple of pops and some scratches,
somewhere over the years it has lost a corner of it’s sleeve.
This album by the great I.K. Dairo has made a journey before
ending up with us. Baba Aladura was his nickname, the very
popular I.K. Dairo played guitar, acordeon and talking drum.
He called his juju ‘ashiko music’ like it used to be called in the
past. This is volume two to begin with, I’ll post the first volume
some time later. Enjoy listening to I.K. Dairo & his Blue Spots
and don’t forget to find the other seven I.K. Dairo lp’s..
