African Zombie

Here is Ephraim Uzomechina Nzeka's funky rendition of Fela Kuti's "Zombie". This African disco gem was originally released on Nzeka's very rare 1980 album Brother To Brother. The track was also more recently included on Comet Records' incredible compilation Bilongo - A Third Collection Of Modern Afro Rhythms, which is easily one of my favorite comps of all-time. Overall, Nzeka's does a nice job with the Afrobeat classic, speeding up the tempo a bit and giving the song a more disco feel. Simply a true African disco gem!
