The music is beautiful and creative and it showcases an authentic African groove, fusing a large horn section, call and response and a long coda that is reminiscent of the late great Fela Kuti compositions.
Bez has spent the past year recording in studios in New York, Houston, Lagos, and even going to his Northern Nigerian village of Karu, Nassarawa State to work with and record traditional musicians and instrumentation to craft this big, bodacious, brilliant and brassy collection of records of which There’s A Fire is the first single.
