CALIPSO TIME! A brand new Super-Sonic Jazz release

Commissioned for Fela Day in Amsterdam Paradiso Noord, Raul Monsalve y Los Forajidos celebrates the legacy of Fela Anikolapu Kuti with this new 10’’ vinyl. Where Nigerians rhythms travel the Atlantic ocean to meet Venezuelan Calipso , sangueos, and more.

We are glad to finally be able to present to you a physical product of a beloved artist and friend. Raul Monsalve and his Los Forajidos were a highlight of last year’s festival and now the Venezuelan groove force returns, this time at Fela’s Day – Friday 28 October, on which we’ll celebrate the life of the father of afrobeat. 

Pre-order this limited 10″ on the Super-Sonic Jazz Bandcamp. You can read more about the project there too. Note: music is vinyl only, so don’t sleep.
