Note From Dada!
Strongly Reccomended...!
Ένα γευστικότατο - σύχρονο coctail με βάση από Fela Kuti, Mulatu Astatke και άλλων μουσικών afro/groove "γεύσεων" από τους Νεοϊορκέζους Budos Band που καταφέρνουν ωστόσο να διατηρούν τον πρoσωπικό τους χαρακτήρα ως μπάντα.
Εδώ το δεύτερο και κατά την γνώμη μου καλύτερο τους album.

About the Budos Band
The Budos Band are an "Instrumental Staten-Island Afro-Soul" outfit recording on the Daptone Records label. The band has eleven members (up to thirteen members at times) who play instrumental music that is self-described as "Afro-Soul," a term and sound which - in a recent interview - baritone saxophone player Jared Tankel elucidates as, being drawn from Ethiopian music the band had been listening to that had a soul undercurrent to it, which the band then "sprinkled a little bit of sweet 60's stuff on top" of.

Jazz, deep funk, Afro-beat, and soul influences can be heard in the Budos Band albums, both of which are Daptone Records releases recorded at the label's own studio, Daptone's House of Soul, in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Numerous other funk and soul outfits appear on the same label including: The Mighty Imperials, Sugarman 3, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, plus others.
