Product Details

Summary

Following up on our reissue of Peter King's African Dialects, we are thrilled to again be working directly with Orbitone Records and Peter King to bring Omo Lewa back into print. You may be familiar with highlights like "Afro-Funk" and "Ajo," which have been singeing slipmats for years, but overlooked tracks like "Omo Lewa," "Eda," and "Ko Dara" help solidify what is surely one of King's most consistently hard hitting records.

Recorded in London, it marks the second release by King on Orbitone Records, a relationship spanning from 1975-1978 and yielding four studio albums. It signaled a further refinement of his arrangement and compositional skills, and exists in stark contrast to Miliki Sounds, his predominately highlife-centric Orbitone debut. Throughout a career spanning the late 1950s through today, King has maintained his roots in the Western African music he grew up with, while expanding his formal musical education in London at the Trinity School of Music, the same school both Ebo Taylor and Fela Kuti attended. The results are a rich sonic palette of of funk, highlife, and jazz executed with the acumen and precision of a master.
