A richly detailed and intimate portrait of the music scene of Lagos, Nigeria.
Young Fathers say: "‘Don’t kill me with toy music…’ by Remi Vaughan-Richards, which follows seven 70-85 year old yoruba master musicians. It is partly about the influence of Jazzhole Records, in Lagos who uncovered an un-mined seam of unique sounds, created without the normal polite restrictions, exposing layers of self/humanity in a unique way. Rough and ready is more beautiful than fresh and so clean."
