In his 75 years on this earth, Nigerian drum master Babatunde Olatunji – ‘Baba’ to his friends and disciples – broke down many barriers and preconceptions and took the music of his continent to a wider world. Since a box set by Bear Family Records in the Nineties is now out of print, our 3 disc re-issue of 3 original albums is timely in bringing the magic of this drum master to a new generation.
