Peter Bishop & Afro Wave – Mamy Wata (Cameroun, 1989, Equateur)

For today, I wanted to share with you “Mamy Wata“, a catchy Afro Boogie Jazz Funk Synth track with Afrobeat flavors and killer horns, taken from the only album privately recorded and distributed in the 90s by the mysterious musician & composer Peter Bishop and his Afro Wave Orchestra.

This LP is an extremely hard to find masterpiece from start to finish that looks like a lost 90s recording from the Nigerian Legend Fela Kuti so.. Enjoy !
