Sir Shina Adewale and the Superstars International "Super Stars New Sound-Verse 6 " (Wel-Kadeb records 1979) (Yoruba Juju)

Great Juju stuff from the end of the seventies. (Thanks to Groovemonzter for the info) Segun Adewale and Shina Peters were young musicians playing with General Prince Adekunle in 1977 when they decided to form their own band, "Sir Shina Adwale & the Superstars International." During the next three years they released nine albums. The album posted here was their sixth. The sound here is really intersting. You'll hear a beat box, and if you listen to the second face, you'll be able to listen some techno-juju. This last song, "oba oyebade lipede" (I put a sample at the end of this post), is just amazing.
You'll find some more LP of Sir Shina Adewale here, on the great blog of Groovmonzter, and if you like Juju music, here you'll find other posts from my blog.

Excellent album de Juju de la fin des années 70. Segun Adewale et Shina Peters étaient musiciens au sein de l'orchestre de Prince Adekunle, un des maîtres du genre. En 1977 ils montent leur propre groupe et, en trois ans, pondent 9 albums. Celui-ci est le 6e. Le son est plutôt étonnant dans la mesure ou vous pourrez entendre, outre les synthés, une espèce de boite à rythme...Et si vous écoutez jusqu'au dernier morceau de la face B (celui qui est en écoute plus bas), vous entendrez les prémices de la techno nigerianne...
Vous trouverez d'autres albums de Shina Adewale ici sur l'excellent blog de Groovemonzter, et si vous êtes fans de Juju je vous invite à parcourir les posts du blog sur le sujet ici.
