Louise Kennedy – Puyai Lee (Thailand, 1967, Self-Produced)

For today, I wanted to share with you “Puyai Lee“, a very popular surf & rockabilly song back in the Thaïland of the 60s, strongly influenced by the occidental Ye Ye musical movement.

Sung in Thai, this song is a sarcastical reflection of miscommunication between folks, villagers and government, level of language & the way to communicate with people – Enjoy !

The Identicals – Akwa Kayi Ji Bia Nuwa (Nigeria, 1977, Emi Nigeria)

The Identicals was a Nigerian band composed by two twins brothers, Peter (Bass) and Paul (Guitar) State, who played around Lagos clubs and studios (as backing members for other musicians) back in the 70’s.
The song presented here, “Akwa Kayi Ji Bia Nuwa” is taken from their one and only album, “Rock Exponent“, and is a sublime example of the local Psychedelic Afro Rock scene back in the Nigeria of the 70s.
The title of this song could be translated (in Igbo language) as “We Come Into This World Crying” – Enjoy !

Akaeze’s International Band – It’s Tough To Be Rich (Nigeria, 1978, Afrodisia)

The Akaeze’s International Band from Nigeria was leaded by Eric “Showboy” Akaeze, a musician converted very early to the Afrobeat musical genre that he made his own version called “Ikoto Rock“.

Originally from the Delta State (Mid-West region of Nigeria), Akaeze moved to Lagos as a fairly young man and played for a while in Bobby Benson’s famous band and founded a few times after his first band, The Royal Ericos, and then recorded several albums with different groups as The Akaeze’s International Band or The Azagas.

The track I wanted to make you rediscover today, “It’s Tough To Be Rich“, is an awesome 9 minutes long kick ass deep Afrobeat track – Enjoy !!
