Were an afro-rock group formed in Nigeria in the late 1960s. They moved to London in 1973 and quickly gained prominence in the West African and West Indian music scene, before fragmenting four years later. They specialized in a brand of funky, upbeat, highly danceable afro-rock that often featured lyrics sung in Igbo, as well as English. Originating as an army band after the Nigerian Civil War, they contributed to the outpouring of upbeat music produced by young people in Nigeria in response to the darkness of the recently concluded civil conflict. In 2012, Soundway Records reissued a compilation of their recordings from the mid-70s, leading to a resurgence of interest in the band.
