About Engr. Bruno
Engr. Bruno has had significant success in producing some of the heavy hitters in Bongo Music including ND Arabanko, Chimuanya (Ayakata Bongo), Agbaso (Ababanna), Obisco Nwamama and takes his production knowledge up several notches to create a genre bending and busting set of tracks. He married the influences of the Bongo and Jazz greats, new and old, into each of the track on this album. The fusion of the Jazz style reminiscent of the Late Cardinal Rex Lawson and the Bongo style of ND Arabanko is embedded in the track "Off the Hook", while the track "Moonlight dance" is a re-imagination and jazzification of Chimuanya's platinum selling standard "Ayakata bongo" by Engr. Bruno.
