Boomkat Product Review:
Listening to the sweet, breezy brass tone and pattering drums of Obadikah’s enchanting, eponymous debut, if you squeeze your eyes tight enough and hug the radiator, we can almost imagine it’s summer in Manchester again.
Lagos, Nigeria-based brass band, Obadikah is a group of seven old friends who gather to play in churches of Logos’ Ikeja and Isale Eko districts. They include founding members of the Eko Brass Band, who’ve played with the best of Nigeria’s long-rooted reggae bands.
Their tunes are based on Yoruban melodies “often sung at bed-time” and it’s fair to say there’s a nursery rhyme charm to songs such as Iwo Ore Mi, which is sung in Yoruba to deliciously woozy and shuffling backdrops.
