New York, NY – IndigeDisc returns on April 22nd with the release of Synchro Series by the legendary King Sunny Ade.
Ade and his African Beats have thrilled audiences worldwide for over two decades with the scintillating West African sounds known as Juju music. However, while releasing several stateside albums over the years, recorded specifically for the Western market, his indigenous Nigerian recordings, released concurrently in Africa, have never before been available in the United States.
Synchro Series now makes two of those original albums from Ade’s creative peak available for the first time. Taking the listener on a journey back to a landmark period for African music, Synchro Series features pristine remastering, rare and early photos of Sunny Ade, and three sets of detailed, highly informed liner notes by IndigeDisc founder and longtime Ade manager, Andy Frankel; music critic for Nigeria’s prestigious Guardian newspaper, Benson Idonije; and respected World Music journalist J. Poet.
