The Apostles – Banko Woman

For over forty years, the Apostles of Aba have stood as the jewel in the crown of the music scene in Eastern Nigeria. Since their formation in 1973, the band has turned out memorable performances in a variety of styles including rock, soul, funk, pop and reggae. Even today, the Apostles continue to thrill audiences in their hometown of Aba with dazzling shows.
Cultures of Soul are now set to release one of the Apostles’ more obscure, yet relentlessly funky recordings, “Banko Woman”, originally released on the eponymous LP on Love Day Records in 1977. Straddling the world realms of afro-funk and disco, the track has long been a coveted dance floor filler amongst DJs, and for the first time is available for a wider audience. On the B-side is “Faith, Luck & Music,” also from the original Banko Woman album. Released as a limited edition 7 inch on May 19th visit Cultures Of Soul to secure your copy and have a listen. Perfect sunshine music!
