Sir Waziri Oshomah And His Family Traditional Sound Makers


Despite the name of the band, this is not traditional music, but highlife. And Islamic Highlife, for that matter, later albums are credited to Alhaji Waziri Oshomah.
Once again a quote from John Beadle:
'Alhaji Waziri Oshomah was born in Osomegbe Ekperi, northern Edo State, Nigeria, and together with his late colleague/rival Bolivia Oshiogbeme is a leading musician of the Etsako people of that region. Edo and Delta States, together with their constituent peoples such as the Edo or Bini, Urhobo, Itsekiri and "western" Igbo, roughly correspond to the former Benin Empire, renowned worldwide for its artwork. While Etsako is related to the more widespread Edo language, the two are not mutually intelligible. There are close to 200,000 Etsako speakers in Nigeria, divided among various dialects. Oshomah's recordings are usually listed as "Ekperi," which is a dialect of Etsako.'
Anyway, enjoy: Egwili Ozagboa II (sorry about the skip)
