Musiliu Haruna Ishola

Musiliu Haruna Ishola & His Apala Remix — Soyoyo

Found this at a Nigerian shop in Brooklyn not too long ago. Track 1 on Side 2 is a monster. Haruna Ishola‘s son Musiliu makes music, didn’t know that til now. This is a revitalized take on apala music, a percussive Yoruba Muslim genre of popular music from back in the day (ie 1930s-70s heyday).

I was just checking this guy out on a video and thinking it was his father. This sounds more modern than the video.
