2014 release. Muyei Power, or Orchestre Muyei (muyei means "our country"), was one of the top dance bands of the1970s in Sierra Leone. Soundway's first collection of music from this West African country, Sierra Leone in 1970s USA, is an album of rock-infused, "Afro" music from a group that traveled the world throughout the mid-1970s. Fusing elements of electric Congolese and Nigerian music with fast, syncopated, up-tempo modernized arrangements of traditional music, Muyei Power produced a series of unique single-only releases that have been unavailable for 35 years. The rare recordings featured here are a glimpse of a dynamic and powerful band at the very height of its powers.
