Rhythms of Life Songs of Wisdom
4.9 out of 5 stars with 89 reviews
This recording leaves the listener breathless and astounded by the musical richness of this small area of Africa. In these performances from remote areas of central Ghana, the collective musical genius of everyday farmers, fisher-folk, traders, and civil servants bursts forth. Their singing and chanting moves through a colorful palette of instruments including water drums, rectangular frame drums, side-blown horns, and brass bands. Clear, penetrating sounds of metal instruments offset by

Many bands were bringing international influences into rock in the early '70s, but no one fused funk, Afro-Cuban jazz and rock quite like Osibisa. Sophisticated horn arrangements, driving bass lines, African chants, tribal beats this 1973 LP is one of Osibisa's best: Take Your Trouble Go; Bassa Bassa; Happy Children; Fire , and more!.

Rough Guide to Nigeria & Ghana
4.8 out of 5 stars with 77 reviews
With 400 ethnic groups in Nigeria alone, The Rough Guide to the Music of Nigeria & Ghana (from the Rough Guide series) covers a vast canvas. So it's no wonder--and probably a sensible idea--that Fela Kuti, the Nigerian singer best known in the West, should not be included (on the grounds that his records are ubiquitous anyway). What is included here is dominated by that quintessentially mid-20th-century style known as highlife, best exemplified by its undisputed king E.T. Mensah. With his

Recall 2 CD presents 30 sun filled tunes from Osibisa, the band's percussive influence began to manifest itself within the music of their contemporaries. The Osibisa polyrhythms and percussive breaks were to be an integral feature of the disco boom that was to follow in the late 70's. Snapper Music. 2003..
Big Dance A Keep
4.2 out of 5 stars with 13 reviews
Jah Thomas was born in Rockfort, Kingston 2, yet was raised from the age of twelve in Trenchtown, and is otherwise known as Nkrumah -- so named after the Ghanaian revolutionary. To those who know their roots music, Jah Thomas is recognized as part of that musical revolution in the early 80’s that moved the musical form onwards from spacious Rockers music to a leaner, more urban and threatening sound -- Often backed by Style Scott and the militant and austere Roots Radics, Jah Thomas featured
Ewe Music of Ghana / Various
4.4 out of 5 stars with 94 reviews
Among the Ewe of southeast Ghana, drummers must also be proficient dancers, and dancers are often required to become musicians as well. As evidenced on this recording, Ewe instrumentation is largely percussion-based and includes talking drum, double or single gong, and gourd rattle played in complex, polyrhythmic patterns. Instrumentation varies depending on the nature of the occasion (festival, funeral, etc). Liner notes include further cultural commentary from Seth Ladzekpo, the former

Traditional Drumming Ghana / Various

4.9 out of 5 stars with 109 reviews
As conveyed in Traditional Drumming and Dances of Ghana, drum rhythms communicate important messages on all occasions: about unity, bravery in war, honoring ancestors and chiefs, and initiation into adulthood, among others. Scholar and music editor John Tanson recorded music of six Ghanaian tribes in the 1970s, and the resulting album shows the significance of drumming and dance, especially as demonstrated in the track ''Talking Drums.'' Track notes are accompanied by pictures of some of the

After unleashing their sensational debut album in 1971, Osibisa returned with an impressive follow up when Woyaya was released the following year. A firm favourite with students and rock festival fans, Osibisa was always popular in the UK and throughout Europe, where their rock guitar blended with African rhythms appealed to dancers and listeners alike. Osibisa brought a breath of fresh air to a scene where audiences once sat passively listening to prog rock concerts. Now they could get up and
