Osibisa - Osibisa (1971)


Sunny, prog-y Afrobeat. The bands starts out by explicitly declaring their intention to spread positive vibes, then proceeds to expertly do just that for the entirety of the album. Discovered Osibisa, just like this little gem, due to its having been produced by Tony Visconti.

Track listing:
1. The Dawn
2. Music for Gong Gong
3. Ayiko Bia
4. Akwaaba
5. Oranges
6. Phallus C
7. Think About the People
