In early February Sola Akingbola was interviewed on Resonance FM and the interview is now available to listen to via the African Essence website (see 7th February link).
Two tracks from Sola's Routes to Roots album and Jamiroquai's Space Cowboy are played, together with an interesting interview with Sola, where he talks about all sorts of things, including how he first joined Jamiroquai...
Prior to the bands performance on French television show Taratata in 1994, (Jamiroquai drummer) Derrick McKenzie had three names of potential percussionists to perform on the show. Derrick thought that Sola's name was unique and chose him because of that. Sola got the gig because of his name!
The tracks/interview start at approximately 17 minutes into the recording.
