Igede Fantasia

November 26, 2011

celestine ukwu philosophers national – igede fantasia (philips 1975 lp) album

More Celestine Ukwu! The Nigerian highlife musician is one of my favorite discoveries of 2011, and I’m very happy to continue what I started with “Ilo Abu Chi” in march and “Ejim Nk’onye” in August. “Igede Fantasia” dates from 1975, and is a slightly more upbeat and raucous affair then the previous two. The last track has Ukwu reciting what sounds like a part of the Nigerian Yellow Pages – anyone able to shed some light on this?
