Dare you to try and sit still while this is playing.
this is gorgeous. It's like sun shining out of a speaker cone.
Weirdly I almost bought myself a 5-LP box of Ghanaian Afro-beat for £30 today, but decided that I'm too poor, but this is worth hunting down.
The first Togolese band I've ever heard in fact. That tiny sliver of a country, who knew they were up to something.
of the CD on the youtube clip was a Ghanaian and Togolese compilation is all.
I'm gonna listen again now, I love this luminous west african stuff... The guitars sound like glow-worms.
from tons of great musicians running around through Ghana, Togo, Benin and Nigeria. Such a musically rich area.
"Saw this recommended in? the daily mirror, definitely buying it now? :)" and feared the worst. Not sure who suddenly developed taste at The Mirror but I am sure they will be doing better for themselves soon.
