"It's about time the Lijadu Sisters' unique, punkish slant on 1970s funk, soul and disco got its rightful dues" says Petridis in a rare mainstream music review for (admittedly English language) 'world' music from the Guardian
a stripped-back, concise take on Kuti's slippery funk, the insistent pulse of disco, the stinging guitars and organ of psychedelic rock, plus acoustic folk and the bassy thunder of talking drums. At its best – the mesmeric groove of Bayi L'Ense, or Life's Gone Down Low's defiant, super-cool strut – the music on Afro-Beat Soul Sisters is as tough as the women who made it
