Loving this teaser for the documentary on Faaji Agba, a collective of Yoruba master musicians which included the late Fatai Rolling Dollar, Seni Tejuoso aka “Teje Baby” and Sina Ayinde Bakare. It’s directed by Remi Vaughan Richards of Singing Tree Films Productions who has been trailing members of the ensemble, which is rooted in Palm Wine Music, for the past three years. The Faaji Agba have been recording Yoruba classics for the past 10 years under the Jazz-Hole recording label based in Lagos…. so, BIG respect to Kunle Tejuoso at Jazz-Hole and all at the refuge that is the Glendora bookshop.

If you are in Lagos tonight – Friday December 11th from 7-9pm – Faaji Agba, will be showing at the Campos Square, Lagos Island from 7-9pm. There’s an after party performance by the Eko Brass Band at outside EBONY Funeral Home at, 7 Igbosere Road, Lagos from 10pm-2am. Wishing I was there!
