King Sunny Adé – Juju Music (1982)

King Sunny Adé is the undisputed master of Jùjú, a type of Nigerian pop music that combines electric guitars and synthesizers with dense polyrhythms and talking drums. This was the first record he put out on a major label, and the one that introduced him to the world.


  1. Great LP. Strong influence on the likes of Trey Anastasio during his big band streak..."If you go to see King Sunny, you know you're going to dance all night long."
