This is the first official Mr. Bongo reissue of the extremely rare full-length album by Lagos-based bandleader Shina Williams. The record was born in 1979 when Shina put Biddy Wright, Fred Fisher, Saliu Alabi, Prince Bola, Tutu Shoronmu, Tunde Williams and several other decorated Nigerian musicians — who played with the likes of Fela Kuti, SJOB Movement, Sonny Okoson and King Bucknor among others — together to record. The result is ‘African Dances,’ a timeless fusion of afrobeat, electronics, boogie and disco. This record includes Williams’ most well-known song, “Agboju Logun,” that he knew was groundbreaking.

Due to COVID-19 and its impact on manufacturing, we are experiencing pre-order delays more frequently. We’ll keep the estimated ship months as up to date as possible, but please be advised.
If you have multiple products in your order, you can choose the ‘Direct Ship’ option to receive products as they become available in multiple shipments. Otherwise, they will be grouped in a single shipment (or your next ROTM shipment for members) after all products are received at our warehouse.
Since pre-order albums are not available to ship until the manufacturing completes, the actual ship date can shift. If there is a delay, we will always contact you.
