Baba Ken and the Nigerian Brothers

The acoustic folk group BABÁ KEN OKULOLO & the NIGERIAN BROTHERS brings to life their earliest village memories, recreating the folk and palm-wine music they heard as children, music that was played under the full moonlight. With harmonious voices, lilting guitars, and traditional percussion instruments, this gentle but joyously rhythmic music is a special treat for those who enjoy authentic African sounds. Their recording, Songs from the Village, received the 2009 JPF Music Award for “Best African Album.”
