Femi Kuti – Day By Day (CD)

From the first beats of Oyimbi to the final cymbal crash of Inside Religion, this is a party album that will create joy and tears and lots of good spiritual conversation. “All in the name of peace”. The dance flow is just right, a few fast songs, coupled with slow songs to calm the feet and heart. “Day by day by night by night we work and pray for peace to reign.” This CD will have a prominent place by my player for many parties to come. I love making people think while they dance, and Femi provides very thoughtful poetry to deeply consider. Flavors are jazz, rock, reggae, funk, soul and groove, spiced with gospel. Femi Kuti
