Prince Nico Mbarga & Rocafil Jazz - Free Education in Nigeria (1977)



Bravo Juju is very happy to bring you this very nice Highlife record, ripped from vinyl


01. Free Education In Nigeria

02. Onye Ori Obi

03. Simplicity

04. Nature



The son of a Nigerian mother and a Cameroonian father, Mbarga embraced the musical traditions of both cultures. With his soulful vocals set to the light melodies of his acoustic guitar, Mbarga created a unique hybrid of Ibo and Zairean guitar playing and uplifting highlife rhythms. Mbarga's musical approach was inspired by the five years he spent in Cameroon during the Nigerian Civil War of the late '60s.


Sharpening his instrumental skills while playing xylophone, conga, drums, and electric guitar in school bands, he made his professional debut as a member of a hotel band, the Melody Orchestra, in 1970. Returning to Nigeria two years later, he formed his own group, Rocafil Jazz, to perform regularly at the Naza Hotel in the eastern Nigerian city of Onitsa.


Although he later formed the New Rocafil Jazz Band, Mbarga failed to match his early success. Leaving music, he turned his attention to managing the two hotels that he owned, Hotel Calbar and the Sweet Mother Hotel.

JR,

Thanks for posting this great record. I should know, it belonged to my family. Jock Ewing stole it from my father, Digger. And if it's the last thing I do, I'm going to get it back.

Oh Barnes..
When you gonna learn? Digger offered this record to Jock some centuries ago. Maybe he'd been drinking, who knows?
I'll tell you what: why don't you keep this share and take Sue Ellen back and forget about this little incident?
Do visit us at South Fork in case you need a meal...
Regards
JR

Thanks to their good reputation of good quality exercise equipment, as well as their certain end result plan, Bowflex continues to
be a major selection for many US and Canada homes instead of getting a membership on the area
