William Onyeabor Vinyl Box Set Vol. 1 on Numbered Limited Edition 5LP + 7" Box Set

The first of two William Onyeabor vinyl box sets from Luaka Bop features five of the albums the elusive Nigerian synth-funk pioneer self-released between 1977 and 1985 - remastered and officially available for the first time. His music represents the epitome of the golden era of Nigerian funk, before he gave up a life in music to become a devout Christian. Luaka Bop released the critically acclaimed compilation Who is William Onyeabor? in October of 2013, and has since seen the release of the documentary Fantastic Manwhich was fabricated around the myth of the musician and attempts to unearth the man behind the music. It is also now a full blown live show touring the world, paying tribute to the music of Onyeabor featuring a supergroup of Damon Albarn, David Byrne, Kele Okereke from Bloc Party, Alexis Taylor from Hot Chip, the Lijadu Sisters, Money Mark, Pat Mahoney and Sinkane. To this day, William Onyeabor has not spoken about his music in one single interview.
