Kologbo feat. Monkuti - Wearplay EP#28 - Cool Down feat. Monkuti | Paris DJs (
We nearly missed KOLOGBO DAY yesterday. Every 6th of the month is Kologbo day at Paris DJs, which means we're celebrating our friend Oghene Kologbo, who was Fela Kuti's tenor guitarist in Afrika 70, who played with nearly everyone from the worldwide afrobeat scene ever since it emerged in the late 1990s (thanks to Antibalas a a few others), who released an album a few months ago on our Paris DJs label… So yesterday (sunday, may 6th), we could only reveal the visual poster artist Ben Hito had done for a new Wearplay T-shirt, in the Kologbo monthly singles series. Thankfully we're back on track today with the tune illustrated on this musical T-shirt: "Cool Down", featuring Parisian afrobeat band Monkuti and production by the Grant Phabao relentless music factory. The message is clear, as Kologbo tells it: "Cool down everyone, use your brain, and think something right for the sufferation of people. Everything is going astray so we need to cool down and do something"...
