African Woman

Johnny Rodrigues, the Capeverdean singer that had with HEY MA YO in the year 1975 a number-one hit in the Netherlands, his adopted country. And this is also the title of this album. Released on the Dutch record label Negram and the German Music For Pleasure. It’s full of Funk & Soul, Latin and African music produced by Dutch singer and composer Peter Tetteroo. Often a little bit over the cheesy edge.

There is one towering tune called AFRICAN WOMAN, a smart made cover of LADY by Fela Kuti the pioneer of the Afrobeat music genre.
