Product Details


Growing up in a royal household in Nigeria, Joni Haastrup began his musical journey performing for his brothers band Sneakers and was quickly snapped up as a vocalist for Orlando Julius Ekemode and his Modern Aces' Super Afro Soul LP, one of Afro-beat's formative LPs. Soon after, Ginger Baker of Cream fame replaced Steve Winwood with Joni on keys for Airforce's UK concerts in '71 and the success of the collaboration led to further shows with Baker as part of the SALT project before he returned to Nigeria to set up MonoMono. Back in London in 1978, Joni recorded his solo gem Wake Up Your Mind for the Afrodesia imprint.

Laced with funk basslines, swirling keyboards and screaming guitars, this is Joni's most 'western' record but at the same time unmistakably of the African origin. From the slow-motion disco of Greetings to the stone cold groove of Watch Out to the Reuben Wilson style funk of Free My People Joni was soaking up the sounds of the times and blending them with the music of his roots.

After Keni Okulolo and Akeeb Kareem's albums, HOT CASA RECORDS is proud to reissue this nigerian afro funk gem on gatefold vinyl, remastered.
