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.

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.
