Akabu

 

Akabu - Akabu - Viva Records - 1988

With reggae music being mostly a studio based music, bands - were always going to have an hard time breaking through. Those that did usually always ended up in a compromise. An all-woman reggae band then would have an even harder job, and if they did break through the compromise would probably be greater. This however is not the case with Akabu. They set out to make roots reggae music, and this is what they have created on their debut album. A fine set of songs are placed over well arranged and produced rhythms.
