Grant Phabao Afrofunk Arkestra - The Fourth feat. Muyiwa Kunnuji (Digital Single, Paris DJs, 2015)
Killer afrofunk bombs are dropping regularly with the Grant Phabao Afrofunk Arkestra project. After one limited (and sold out) 45, 'Ogun', two very limited t-shirt singles, 'Talking & Singing' and 'The Wow!', and two instrumental tracks released on the Paris DJs Soundsystem 'Massive Hits From The Grant Phabao Factory' LP, 'Ymoja' and 'Mazouglave', all featuring heavyweight musicians from the current worldwide afro/tropical scene, it was time to take a break, or more precisely, to get loose.
'The Fourth', composed by French producer Grant Phabao with Egypt 80 trumpet player Muyiwa Kunnuji is that kind of jam, an afrofunk joint where everyone's welcome - the more the merrier! With Franck Biyong (Massak) on tenor guitar & bass, Oghene Kologbo (Fela's Afrika 70 guitar player) and Alfred Sonou (Les Frères Smith) on percussions, Cedric Ricard (De La Soul, Grand Rateau Big Band), Ben Abarbanel-Wolff (Ebo Taylor, Pat Thomas), Valentin Pellet (Bim Bam Orchestra), Pierre Pierrot (Tarace Boulba), of course Muyiwa Kunnuji on horns, and Grant Phabao at the controls, this jam is really heavy shit, so fasten your earbelts!
