Tirogo is another great sample of lost African psychedelic music. It was recorded in Nigeria in 1977 and originally released on EMI, same as the great album BLO-Chapter One. This Nigerian psych-rock band Tirogo is similar to bands such as Ofege, Blo, Founders 15, Doves, and Aktion. Great African songs covered with wild guitar solos, spooky organ, great beats and strong vocals. There are four guys pictured on the cover, but six young men were actually in the band. It is getting harder and harder to find lost African bands these days, since there has been a big resurgence in the international music scene to hunt for good material. With the massive help of collectors and Now Again Records in the USA who actually went to Nigeria to sign the boys, QDK Media are able to present this amazing album to you. It will suit the same music lovers who enjoy Amanaz, Witch!, Question Mark and Blo. Band members include: Wilfred Ekanem (bass, percussion, lead vocals); Elvy Akhionbare (lead guitar, percussion); Wilfred Iwang (drums, vocals, percussion); Fumi Onabolu (keyboards, percussion); Godwin Debogie (conga, percussion, vocals).
