Ice - Afro Agban (The Afro-Instrumental) [1973]



The group was formed in Long Island, NY as the Bobby Boyd Congress; deciding America was already overloaded with funk acts, in 1971 they relocated to France, but when frontman Bobby Boyd returned stateside the remaining members renamed themselves Ice and became the house session band at producer Pierre Jaubert's Parisound studio.

Regularly performing live in Paris' Barbesse district — an area made up primarily of African immigrants — Ice's driving funk became increasingly influenced by African rhythms and textures, and in the wake of their 1973 debut LP 'Each Man Makes His Own Destiny', Jaubert changed the group's name to the Lafayette Afro Rock Band.
