With a profound gift of God, here comes another block buster jazz song, remix of “Igwe“ by multi award winning music producer, international jazz pianist, arranger, synthesizer programmer, music consultant and UN international youth peace ambassador, Wole Oni.
He comes with this breathtaking, heart-stirring, spine tingling Afro Cuban known as Salsa music which has so many intriguing, alluring elements of transverse horns ensemble with diverse coloration and rhythmic procession of luxuriant percussions, heavy bottled syncopations yet easy to sing along and danceable vibes.
Having produced so many great hit such as; Olomi by Tosin Martins, Kosobabire by Folake Umosen, Ijoba Orun, Kolebaje and others by Lara George, Woman’s Need and Afurum Gi N’aya by Praiz, African Woman and Mango Tree by Jodie, So More by Kenny Kore, Nigerian Centenary Theme Song All Stars by Onyeka Onwenu, No More by Kayode Olusoji, just to mention a few, Wole Oni, popularly known as (WOMP) is indefatigable making waves across the globe.
Igwe featured the world acclaimed saxophonist and performing artist, Mike Aremu and dexterous trumpet player, Victor Ademofe.
To show that God is the only Igwe (King), Wole Oni recorded an acoustic, fluffy, warm, silky yet fat and inspiring sound of heaven. Rattling on the piano with an astounding improvisation disseminating some plausible, incontrovertible chords while punctiliously interpreting the song in his own arrangement although the original version was released years back by the quadruple ever-blazing group Midnight Crew.
‘Igwe’ song exhibits another expression of a copacetic and exceptional talent out of Africa and speaks about the musical prowess and divinity of God’s awesomeness; with a blend of sweet and enthralling melodies.
This is for all Salsa dancers. Put on your dancing shoes and rock with this euphonious and mellifluous music. Have fun and enjoy!
