Unbeatable Abiriwa

One of the first highlife bands i really liked, after Chief Osita Osadebe got me interested in the genre, were the Peacocks. But this was completely different: short songs, no horns, a rootsier sound but definitely more relaxed than the Oriental Brothers. And my appreciation still grows with every new recording i can get my hands on. Here's one of their later albums.
