MARY AFI USUAH & the South Eastern State Cultural Band - Led by DAN SATCH (Nigeria/1975)

Having attended one of the most prestigious music conservatories in Rome in the ’60’s to study opera singing, Afi Usuah forged ties with a notable array of artists which included the likes of Duke Ellington and Led Zepellin. She forsook a budding and promising career abroad to return home to serve country and flag. Over the years, she mentored and paved the way for a remarkable number of Nigerian female singers.

Dan Satch Joseph leader of his The Atomic "8" Dance Band is a pure tone trumpeter and arranger. Dan Satch started playing the trumpet in 1959 and was the trumpeter leader of Bobby Benson & his Jam Session Band until 1961. In 1962 he moved to Aba and formed the Atomic "8" Dance Band.

This is excellent stuff. She had a really fine voice; a shame it's so little known here in the West.

Mary actually studied classical singing in Rome, appeared on the soundtrack for at least a couple of Spaghetti Westerns and had two 45s release in Italy as well:

Ekpenyong Abasi is being re-released by Voodoo Funk and should be in stores within the next couple of months.
