Ol’ Skool Sunday: Funkin the Diaspora

Barbara Acklin

Is it really Sunday? It is, which means i’ve got some ol’ skool songs that are likely to have you rehearsing your latest dance moves as you listen at your computer!

This week i decided to take a quick journey across the Sonic Diaspora. Featured here is a lil afrobeat, funk, and high life from Nigeria, DRC, U.S., and Ghana/UK.

I hope you enjoy these tunes as much as i do! Much Love.

Tony Allen, “Asiko” (Pop quiz for the hip hop heads: who re-interpreted this in a most fantastic way?)

James Brown & the J.B.’s, “Doin’ It To the Death”

Barbara Acklin, “I Can’t Do My Thing”

Orchestra Lissanga, “Okuzua”

Lijadu Sisters, “Orere Elejigbo”
