    Rare afro-rock from Nigerian's 'Soul brother number one'.

    This is the essential debut album from Joni Haastrup’s band MonoMono originally released in 1971. These seven tracks were drastically different to the soul covers of sixties groups recorded at the time and radically instead incorporated a jazz-rock fusion style.
