Body Music, Afro Funk's 1975 LP, was recorded and released in London, England. The band was comprised mostly of West-African expatriates residing there. At the time, the city was host to a vibrant African music scene. The massive success of Osibisa created a swarm of young bands trying to use London as a launching pad for international stardom. Unfortunately, Afro Funk did not find the success they were looking for and Body Music became their only album. The deep funk grooves and driving afrobeat rhythms featured on this rare LP have made it a desired addition to record collections around the world.

I work at a music library, and yesterday this older black guy was copying pages off a book about the Pori Jazz festival in Finland. He was all excited and showed me the pages he was copying and said that one particular part was talking about his band playing the festival. I'm pretty sure the band's name was Afro Funk, and it was mid-70s. Maybe it really is the same band.
