Audio: Ray Stephen Oche And His Matumbo
Nigerian trumpeter/singer/percussionist Ray Stephen Oche spent a large part of the 1950s in Ghana. While living there he linked up with Afro-jazz pioneer Guy Warren , "who is supposed to have delivered him the secret of the authentic african rhythm." Along with His Matumbo , a group of musicians from Congo, Togo, Guinea, Gambia and Brazil, Oche recorded the afro-jazz and funk gem LP Interpretation of the Original Rhythm . The album was originally only released in France, but it's now being reissued globally by the folk at Favorite Recordings . Stream album cut "Odeiyolaoo" below and grab the LP now.
