    • Guy One – So La Ma La
    • Guy One – To Kale Na'nabala
    • 1. So La Ma La
    • 2. To Kale Na'nabala

    'So La Ma La' has a straight forward Highlife rhythm which melts together with some funky articulated afrobeat-a-like bass line. 'To Kale Na'nabala' is instead in the traditional Kete rhythm, a bouncy poly-rhythm in 12/8. But both songs are mostly defined through Guy One's Kologo lines and his soulful interpretation of the typical north-ghanaian vocal style.
