Album Notes
Beautiful Nubia and the Roots Renaissance Band is Nigeria’s foremost contemporary folk and roots music group. Formed and fronted by songwriter and poet Segun Akinlolu (aka Beautiful Nubia), the group’s songs and albums have achieved cult status among their loyal and growing fans spread across the world.

Beautiful Nubia’s songs are built on rich folkloric traditions and native wisdom but his message is universal in thrust and theme: value life, respect nature and learn to live in peace with others. Four of the songs in this collection (Children of the Sun, Awon Agba, Awilele and O Ya O!) were made in Ottawa with Sound engineer/DJ Eric Vani in 2003/4. Montreal DJ Boogat made the very smart sound-layering effort on "Spirit of a New Generation" in 2007 while the "Fire on the Roof" project was accomplished in 2001, in Lagos, Nigeria with keyboardist/producer Emma Omilabu and Sound engineer Akiim Reid Ado.
