Soundway and Tummy Touch are proud to present a blistering album of Afro-rock and funk from Nigerian multi-instrumentalist Joni Haastrup and his band Monomono. Re-issued on replica gatefold LP with bonus 12" vinyl. This is their 1971 debut album Give The Beggar A Chance. Soundway have been championing Joni Haastrup since day one, featuring Monomono tracks on both the Nigeria Special and Nigeria Rock Special releases. Joni also appears as a guest keys player on Black Goddess, an Afro-jazz soundtrack collaboration with Remi Kabaka. Growing up in a royal household in Nigeria, Joni Haastrup began his musical journey performing for his brother's band Sneakers and was quickly snapped up as a vocalist for O.J. Ekemode and his Modern Aces' Super Afro Soul LP, one of Afro-beat's formative LPs. Soon after, Ginger Baker of Cream fame replaced Steve Winwood with Joni on keys for Airforce's UK concerts in '71 and the success of the collaboration led to further shows with Baker as part of the SALT project before he returned to Nigeria to set up Monomono. Includes bonus 12" vinyl and a download code voucher.
