Odu is one of King Sunny Ade's most ambitious recordings, finding him drawing from his Yoruba traditions and contemporary African trends to create a rich, diverse album. Like many of his other records, there are layers of percussion and guitars that form infectious, percolating grooves, but there are also unexpected twists in the songwriting that makes Odu a rewarding listen for longtime fans.

King Sunny Ade is the undisputed king of juju music and the most celebrated musician from the sub-Sahara Africa. With Odu, he displays his mastery of guitar mixed with percussion and rhythms that are good for listening and a hit on the dancing floor as well. Odu was highly rated that it was nominated for the Grammy award.
