$23.00
Format
Spiritual Jazz tones through the Funk and Soul filters. Really good vibes.
Description
Soundway presents a long-awaited remaster and re-cut of the 1976 album 'Ifetayo' by Black Truth Rhythm Band, an important and overlooked chapter in Trinidad's rich musical history that blends West African influences with jazz, funk and the social commentary of the calypso tradition.

Led by the charismatic Oluko Imo, the group drew on the strong connections to Yoruba culture and Orisa traditions in Trinidad, looking to Africa for inspiration and reflecting the burgeoning Black Power movement of the time.

Recorded at KH studios in Port of Spain, Ifetayo (Yoruba for 'Love excels all') was the group's sole album release. Imo contributed lead vocals and played bass, kalimba, conga, flute and percussion, channelling music from both sides of the Atlantic into a distinctive and unique slice of Afro Trinidadian expression.
