King Sunny Ade & His African Beats - Aura (1984)


Buoyant, infectious Afrobeat that mixes organic percussion with programmed beats. Makes me long for a car full of friends that's headed for the river, the coast, or the mountains, and thankfully, what with summer almost being here, this dream's gonna be a reality real soon. Aura served as my introduction to the wonderful world of King Sunny Ade -- maybe it'll be yours, too.
