We can speak about "Killer french Funk" with this second lp from the band, issued in 1972 on french "America" label. Also enjoy the second press issued on US "Makossa" label (Makossa 2311). Recorded in Paris and New York under the production & direction of Pierre Jaubert ('Berjot') & Roland francis , the Lafayette Afro-Rock Band were a jazz super session group that created a heavy, ghetto funk that has since been sampled by everyone (Public Enemy for exemple)

After the first release "Soul Makossa" LP, everyone recognize the talent in this group. The response was immediate with new rhythm music, that deliver the contemporary funky soulful disco feeling with "Malik".

Exist an essential and official reissue (2xLP) of this album with hi & fly records ( France ). Including "Conga", "Darkest light"," Avi vo", "Malik", "Dgunji" & 2 bonus tracks.
