‘Shakara’ was one of three Fela Kuti albums released in 1972 and like many of his records, features just two songs, one on either side of the album. The loping, hypnotic ‘Lady’ grows and grows before Fela’s rap comes in about 2/3rds of the way through and gains a new energy. The bouncing, pacier title-track is a killer with all the classic elements of Fela’s musical mind firmly in place : a simple, repeated guitar riff, parping, elephant-march brass and that ever present back beat spurring things along. A chorus of male and female backing singers add to the mix. Brilliant stuff.
