African Rhythms

 
Plunky Nakabinde is the leader of the Oneness of Juju, a band from Washington, DC.  After years of struggling, which included a stint in communal living, they signed with the local label Black Fire and became known for their righteous brand of soul jazz.  "African Rhythms" is probably their strongest song, and it has been placed on a couple of compilations.  Larry Levan remixed their 1982 outing "Every Which Way But Loose," a minor club hit.  They made their return in the late 90s with a flurry of releases for the Name Brand label.
