Every 6th of the month is now officially Kologbo day !



Kologbo was Fela's tenor guitar player in Afrika 70. He's been teaching Afrobeat all around the world those last years: Berlin with Afrobeat Academy, Brazil with Abayomy Afrobeat Orquestra Iconili or Amplexos, Chile with Newen Afrobeat, Belgium with World Squad, France with Les Frères Smith or Monkuti, and many more. His second long-player "Africa Is The Future" has been eagerly expected for quite some time now, it will first be released on CD through P-Vine Records in Japan this summer, then on vinyl through Paris DJs this autumn. Since Kologbo was born on a 6th, we've decided to make every 6th of the month "Kologbo Day" and release a new track of his each time!

For this 6th of July, we're proud to reveal "Adjoleru" (alias "Ajaloleru"), a new tune from that album, featuring no less than Ayo on lead and backing vocals, Ben Abarbanel-Wolff (from Ebo Taylor and Pat Thomas' bands) on tenor saxophone, Stu Krause (Poets Of Rhythm/Karl Hector) on trumpet, Kologbo on vocals, drums, bass, percussion, tenor & rhythm guitar (!), with production from Loik Dury and Grant Phabao (both from the Paris DJs collective). A typical roots Afrobeat tune, combining all the influences Kologbo grew up with. Listen, pre-order the album on Bandcamp, and don't forget to come back next month, on the 6th, for a new "Kologbo Day" tune!

Let's take a look at what kinds of intentions you've been working with. The following list describes two very different kinds of motivation in asking questions. Most people are basically information seekers or wisdom seekers, although you may exhibit characteristics of both. Which type are you?
