Adewale Ayuba


Adewale Ayuba, from Nigeria, plays a form of JuJu, called Fuji, which is actually Juju played with all traditional percussion instruments. Seeing Adewale Ayuba and his amazing all-percussion band a few years ago was one of the high musical points of my life (and believe me, I've had quite a few). They appeared in a small club in West Los Angeles, the 15 member band came on around 10 pm and when we left around 3 am they were still going strong.
