Audio: Lijadu Sisters 'Bayi L'ense'


Yoruba priestesses, identical twins and Fela Kuti cousins Lijadu Sisters are prepping the re-issue of 1977 Nigerian Afrodesia gem LP Mother Africa. "Bayi L'ense," the first single off the album, couples Yoruba singing and percussion with 70s fuzz guitar — possibly the influence of Ginger Baker (Cream/Blind Faith) who sister Taiwo dated. Stream below and look out for Mother Africa due Feb 28 via Knitting Factory.
