It’s been a little while since the last show, but I have been in Ghana on a ‘research’ trip. Record shops are few and far between in Ghana which means that we often ended up at people’s house, or bars. We met a lot of interesting characters along the way- including Mr. Kwaku Rasta of Jamestown. The tracks in this selection are a showcase of some of the records I found, including songs from Alex Konadu, Yamoah’s Band, Prince Nico Mbarga and the Kumapim Royals Band. I will be sharing some more of our finds in the next show. Enjoy!
