Tony Allen NEPA (Never Expect Power Always)
- Words: Xavier Mosley
- Label: Wrasse
Known as lead drummer and musical director for the legendary Fela Kuti's Africa 70 band, and also session drummer for many greats including Roy Ayers and Manu Dibango, Tony Allen is a legend in his own right. Polyrhythmic and multilayered, "NEPA" is a classic vibraphone-tinged track recorded in 1984 and is in a similar vein to the Roy Ayers collaborations (i.e. "Africa Centre of The World").
