Following on from the release of last year’s debut album “Kolaba,” London-based afro electronic collective Afriquoi get set to drop Abobo Nation Part 1, their second full release on Wormfood. Today we’re premiering “Sare (means run),” a worldwide gem that is sure to put a smile on your face. Enlisting Nigerian vocalist Adedeji Adetayo, the song begins its journey with a rich guitar twang, Adetayo’s warm vocals follow as drums and electronics are introduced to create a lively atmosphere. The songs lyrics written by Adetayo in his native Yoruba is a call to action for all those wanting to achieve something in life:
“Run run/ stand up listen / time is now for you to come / stand up let’s go // Morning is the day for who ever wants to do great/ stand up get to work Time does not play with life / stand up get to work”
Bursting with energy the track is an explosion of fun that’ll have you shaking a leg in no time. If you’re in London and fancy catching the band performing live they play at the Jazz Café on June 18th. Head here to grab a ticket for the show.
