KINGS OF THE EAST
Dan Satch and his cohorts named themselves the Oriental Brothers to signify their eastern Nigerian heritage. Their sound evolved out of the congolese guitar bands that became increasingly popular and highly influential in west Africa during the early 1970's. It also showcased some of the intricate polyrhythmic patterns that typified Igbo Highlife music.
The Oriental Brothers' music was the perfect antidote that helped to soothe some of the wounds of the brutal Biafran civil war that killed millions and threatened to divide the country.
