Inflenced by Fela Kuti and Jimi Hendrix, Nigerian-born and New York based 'Blu-funk' musician, Keziah Jones performed a Network Africa session in studio S6 here at Bush house.

"Lagos vs New York" is from his five track Nigerian Funk EP which comes in advance of the release of his fifth album, Nigerian Wood, due out in the autumn.

Described as "an album of pride and love" Keziah's new material seeks to represent Nigeria in a more contemporary cultural context with this track drawing parallels between his two favourite cities.
