Miki's Mummy

From Niamey in Niger we head south to... well, I am not sure exactly. I have not been able to uncover anything on the Internet about today's featured act, Eboa Moukouri & His Super Dada Orchestra. An outfit with the unlikely name of Billy Records re-released quite a few of his records as downloads last year, but have not provided any information about the Great Man.

My guess is that Mr Moukouri is from either Nigeria or the English speaking region of Cameroon and that the records date from some time in the 1960s or 1970s. But the details aren't really all that important. What matters most is that he is a jolly soul with a nifty groove and a great line in song titles.
