    Reissue of the classic ‘Music Of Many Colours’, the joint album between Roy Ayers and Fela Kuti, recorded after a three week tour of Nigeria’s major cities in 1979, during
    which Roy Ayers performed as the opening act for Fela’s band. The two artists decided to record the album as a round-up to the tour. ESSENTIAL!
