40 Year Itch : The Gossip Sisters

Lijadu Sisters : Amebo

   Identical sisters related to Fela Kuti , Taiwo and Kehinde Lijadu were stars in their native Nigeria and cult favorites in the US and Europe. The 1976 album Danger, recorded with multi-instrumentalist and fuzz guitar fanatic Biddy Wright, is a fascinating listen. The Knitting Factory label re-released the album in 2011 and David Byrne toured with the duo. "Amebo" , by the way, is apparently a Nigerian word for "gossip".
