The legendary Nigerian singer, songwriter and saxophonist Orlando Julius has won renewed international recognition as a pivotal Afro-pop pioneer, following the 21st century re-release of his classic albums from the 1960s and 70s. Teaming up with psychedelic jazz/funk collective The Heliocentrics, he garnered fresh applause for 2014’s Jaiyede Afro, featuring previously unrecorded vintage material with new compositions.
