On September 27th, the legendary Joni Haastrup reissued three albums, including two from his MonoMono group. The three releases (Give The Begger A Chance [1971], The Dawn of Awareness [1974], and Wake Up Your Mind [1978]) roar sweltering Afro rock and funk from the Nigerian multi-instrumentalist.

The reissues are available on CD, download, and replica gatefold LP.
