Salawa Abeni

Alhaja Queen Salawa Abeni and her Waka Moderniser – India Waka

On this Thanksgiving 2011 we give thanks for the female practitioners of Nigerian fuji music. We at ATFA wish you a happy holiday and offer this 1984 recording as the extra gravy for your turkey/tofurkey.

For more info on Alhaja Queen Salawa Abeni’s catalog check here.

Extra credit can’t hurt.
