Grown folks music

Been a while since I threw up any highlife, so here's some Calabar-style dance music fom Isaiah Dickson's Isadico Dance Band to shake off those mid-week blues.

"Eti Eyeneka"/"Echi Di"
"Nam Uruak Fo Obong"


Can't you just smell the palm wine?

EDIT: Hmmm... The tracks are not playing for me right now. Is anybody else having this problem? If so, my apologies... I'll have to try to fix it later!

thanks, JB!

i'm a bit disappointed to hear that you have this, though... i remember you asked me a while ago about Efik highlife, and this was one i wanted to recommend!
