FUNK/ ZAMROCK - MIKE NYONI - I Can’t Understand You - 1978


Pérola obscura vinda da Zâmbia, o músico Mike Nyoni foi um dos criadores do grupo Born Free, que contava com Chris Mbewe (ex-vocalista do WITCH). Após sair da banda, partiu para carreira solo, lançando aparentemente apenas este álbum em 1978, que teve versões no país africano e também França. Pouco mais se sabe sobre a vida e carreira do artista.
I Can't Understand You é dividido em 10 curtas faixas cheias de groove com influências principais de funk e até um pouco de disco e baladas, porém sem deixar de lado as raízes do Zamrock. O instrumental é simples e direto, guiado pela guitarra, distorcida em alguns momentos, acompanhando o bom vocal de Nyoni. Quanto as faixas destaque para "I Can't Understand You", "Highway" e "Africa".
Uma versão mais suave do Zamrock, porém ainda recomendada para fãs do movimento.

Mike Nyoni is a musician from Zambia, he was one of the members of the group Born Free, which featured Chris Mbewe (former lead singer of WITCH). After leaving the band, he had a short solo career, recording apparently only this album in 1978, which was released in the African country and France. Little else is known about his life and career.
"I Can't Understand You" is divided into 10 short tracks with a lot of groove and influenced  by funk and even a little of disco and ballads, but without neglecting the zamrock roots. The instrumental is simple and straightforward, guitar-driven, at times fuzz, following the good Nyoni's vocals. My favorities tracks are "I Can not Understand You," "Highway" and "Africa". A softer version of zamrock, but still recommended to the fans of the style.
