1 - BILLY BAO - LAGOS SESSIONS - (LP) 
MUNSTER


"Basque-based group Billy Bao travelled to the former Nigerian capital to record a four part ode to the city... These are sound collages, taking snippets of work from local sound artist Emeka Ogboh, former Fela sidesman Duro Ikujenyo and Afro jazz saxophonist Orlando Julius, and melding them coarsely with ambient backing... Billy Bao and co manage to capture the love, affection and unavoidable (unmistakeable) frustration that Lagos evokes." Lanre Bakare, The Wire"Lagos Sessions" featuring: Billy Bao, Ambido, Diana Bada, Duro Ikujenyo, Mark Ido, Oduyomi Isaiah Oluseye, Joel Isioma Okoh, Orlando Julius, Mendo, Emeka Ogboh.Presented in gatefold sleeve with liner notes by Kunle Tejuoso and Ed Emeka Keazor.

2 - BILLY BAO - LAGOS SESSIONS - (CD) 
NIGHT SCHOOL


"Experimental; conceptual? Thats what these sort of things are usually called, when references are anything but immediate: in the feeling, hearing and seeing, especially by many.. I think the most charitable review of this live electronic exploration will suggest the four sections bordering on insanity. How else? Even when not a few self-styled patriots were booking their flights out of the country, with an election looming to signal the end of a nation, and a band of modern day faith-heads detonating grenades in every other street corner, two dreamers swim against the currents and sneak through the lagoon into the country collecting inputs of derelict art; of garbage can noise; of hooting; honking horns on screeching brakes squelching tar; rackety generator booms? For an imagined program.. "How to find a centre here? The output? The hum-drum of the streets daily accent compels the sense of the immediate, the terrestrial; and then those primitive, primeval-seeming echoes of the earliest beginnings of the big bang and its wave-sound simultaneously releasing Sun Ras reverb sensation of end time! This should not be danceable but these guys are suggesting the possibility of rhythm in the inchoate. Believe me, you cant miss the Lagos Faaji, Sakara flow, Awurebe, Afrobeat slices; its jazz, highlife / Euro-Afro funk / rock / rap and seedy night echoes, too. But in their otherworldly dimension. No matter the accolades, I will encourage a therapy of some sorts to the creators of this production." -Sola Olorunyomi.
